The advent of high-throughput microarray technologies has revolutionized molecular biology and has great impact on the way genetic diseases such as cancer are diagnosed, classified, and treated. New methods emerge for the processing and the analysis of microarray data in an attempt to understand the regulation of gene targets and associating pathways, detect differentially-expressed biomarkers, and classify disease subtypes.
This special issue invites contributions to the advanced development and applications of profiling techniques to characterize microarray profiles of cancer patients and new methodologies for the identification of biomarkers relevant to various aspects of cancer screening, growth, diagnosis, treatment therapy, and prognosis. This special issue aims to stimulate further multidisciplinary research on this emerging science.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Microarrays is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
