Special Issue Information:

Noncoding RNAs and epigenetics continue to play fundamental roles in the etiology, detection and treatment of cancer. Over the past decade and a half, researchers have unravelled important roles for miRNA in cancer. Translational applications such as miRNA diagnostics have found their way to the clinic. More recently, a focus on lncRNAs and other noncoding RNAs has emerged including the ability of lncRNAs to bind to and sequester miRNAs by working as competing endogenous RNAs. Several anticancer drugs that inhibit DNA methylation and acetylation are under clinical evaluation. This Special Issue of International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) will highlight work presented at the Second International Symposium on Frontiers in Molecular Science “Non-Coding RNAs and Epigenetics in Cancer”. We invite all attendees to submit a full-length research article from their presented work or a review article of their choosing on the subject of epigenetics in cancer. Submitted work will be due early Fall 2017 with an anticipated publication date of December, 2017.
