The Genetics and Genomics Subject category is edited by Professor Angela Cox (Sheffield, UK).
This subject category covers the use of genetic epidemiology, bioinformatic analysis and molecular biology to identify the genetic and epigenetic factors underlying tumour development and progression, at both the gene and genome-wide levels. This involves improving our understanding of the multiple interacting functional consequences of genetic variance, and how these impact on patient risk and outcome phenotypes, leading to the identification of new treatment targets.
