Proteomics offers a wide range of opportunities to investigate malignancy-associated molecular alterations at the functional level and has stimulated great interest in applying the technology to study cancers and associated diseases. Malignancy-associated proteome alterations in a biological system, localized or systemic, related to or discrete from genomic mutations, may reflect the profound changes in cellular functions and biological processes at multiple levels. These steady or perturbation-induced proteome alterations may include changes on protein expressional level, sequence, status of post-translational modifications (PTMs), protein interaction networks, and cellular localization. In the past two decades, enormous efforts have been increasingly applied in cancer proteomics, with research goals ranging from mechanistic study to biomarker development, as well as to clinical applications. A variety of cancer and control samples, including cell lines and derivatives, tumor tissues and isolated cells, plasma/serum and other bodily fluids, have been investigated. These studies have laid important foundations for future cancer proteomics studies. With the recent advances in mass spectrometry technology, bioinformatics and knowledgebase, the depth, breadth and robustness of proteomics have been significantly improved. The emerging fields in PTM analysis, proteogenomics, single cell proteomics and spectral library-based proteomics, such as SWATH, carry great potentials for basic, translational and clinical cancer research. We welcomes submissions of original research or review articles aiming at the broad field of cancer research using proteomics approaches. Prof. Dr. Sheng Pan

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. Proteomes is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 550 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.
