An Omics Perspective on Cancer Research

Editors: Cho, William Chi-Sing (Ed.)

  • A unique book on cancer written from an ‘omics’ perspective, representing signs of the times
  • Combines unparallel topics of interest in the ‘omics’ field
  • ‘omics’ is a cutting-edge topic in the medical and scientific fields
  • In the ‘omics’ era, not many specialized books cover the topic
  • Contributes to the scientific and medical community by providing scientific information on the analytical performance of "omics" data, its validity in predicting health outcomes, and its utility in improving cancer management

About this book

Omics is an emerging and exciting area in the field of science and medicine. Numerous promising developments have been elucidated using omics (including genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics, metabolomics, interactomics, cytomics and bioinformatics) in cancer research. The development of high-throughput technologies that permit the solution of deciphering cancer from higher dimensionality will provide a knowledge base which changes the face of cancer understanding and therapeutics.

This is the first book to provide such a comprehensive coverage of a rapidly evolving area written by leading experts in the field of omics. It complies and details cutting-edge cancer research that covers the broad advances in the field and its application from cancer-associated gene discovery to drug target validation. It also highlights the potential of using integration approach for cancer research.

This unique and timely book provides a thorough overview of developing omics, which will appeal to anyone involved in cancer research. It will be a useful reference book for graduate students of different subjects (medicine, biology, engineering, etc) and senior scientists interested in the fascinating area of advanced technologies in cancer research.

Readership: This is a precious book for all types of readers – cancer researchers, oncologists, pathologists, biologists, clinical chemists, pharmacologists, pharmaceutical specialists, biostatisticians, and bioinformaticists who want to expand their knowledge in cancer research.
