In the personalized medicine era, human diseases are further classified into subtypes accordingly to the molecular portrait. Characteristics of certain gene(s) and cluster of genes/proteins will have better prediction on the prone of the disease, treatment response and prognosis.
In this Topical Collection, we focus, particularly, on how precision medicine can be applied from bench to bedside. After all, accurate diagnosis and prescribing right drug and right treatment to the right patient is a common goal of healthcare professionals in providing prevention and effective treatments.
We welcome original papers and review articles that focus on the latest advances of precision medicine. The following key areas are covered but not exclusive:
- Genetic variant of human diseases in precision medicine
- Examples of precision medicine in human disease treatment and prevention
- Application of Omics technologies in precision medicine
- Application of big data analysis in precision medicine
- Molecular imaging for precision medicine
- Tools employed in precision medicine, including molecular diagnostics, analytics and software
- The application of panomic analysis and systems biology for precision medicine
- Precision oncology
- Using molecular pathological epidemiology to identify potential biomarkers for precision medicine
- Extending precision medicine principles into basic science research and biomedical information technology activities
