Cancer is a complex disease with widespread genetic and epigenetic alterations. To understand the potential mechanism of cancer, large-scale genomes, transcriptomes and proteomes have been generated for various types of cancer. However, it is still a challenge to analyze the huge omics data. Bioinformatics analysis can greatly help mining the knowledge hidden in the biomedical big data. An increasing number of methods, tools, webservers and databases have been proposed to help with data analysis. In addition, bioinformatics analyses have also uncovered the perturbed signaling, immune and metabolism pathways in cancer. The interactions of genetic and epigenetic alterations also can rewire the tumor microenvironments. Numerous biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis have been prioritized by using a bioinformatics analysis for cancer.
In this Special Issue, we will focus on bioinformatics analyses for cancer, including computational methods, tools, and software or webserver development. We also encourage comprehensive analyses of public genome, transcriptome and proteome data in cancer for finding novel hypotheses. Integration of multiple omics datasets to reveal new biomarkers, and findings on tumor microenvironments or drug development are also suitable for this Special Issue. We welcome submissions of reviews, research articles, short communications and concept papers.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Genes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
