Special Issue "Trends in Precision Oncology from Data Science"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Center for Computational Science, University of Miami, Coral Gables, FL, USA
Interests: complexity in biomedicine; big data in health; systems medicine; precision medicine; translational medicine; cancer networks; comorbidity; theranostics; digital biomarkers; computational bio-imaging
The new developments in Precision Oncology depend on a few commonly-accepted factors:
- Access to Big Data resources, such as large repositories of molecular profiles, genetic information, electronic health records;
- Annotated bio-banks with biological samples associated to clinical information;
- Drug banks designed to perform computational repositioning and enabling targeting by proteins, peptides, small molecules, monoclonal antibodies;
- Bio-imaging repositories
All such domains present complexities that need to be addressed by the next generation of computational methods and developments appearing from the emerging Data Science field.
This call is specifically addressing these needs, and invites contributions targeted to the design, implementation, application and utilizations of technologies and methodologies relevant to Precision Oncology. Prevention, diagnostic, therapeutic focus will be given equal consideration.
The submission deadline for abstract is 28 February 2018, while for full manuscript is 30 June 2018.
Dr. Enrico Capobianco
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 papers will be 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. Journal of Clinical Medicine 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 1800 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.
