OBM Genetics is an international Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. It accepts papers addressing basic and medical aspects of genetics and epigenetics and also ethical, legal and social issues. Coverage includes clinical, developmental, diagnostic, evolutionary, genomic, mitochondrial, molecular, oncological, population and reproductive aspects. It publishes a variety of article types (Original Research, Review, Communication, Opinion, Comment, Conference Report, Technical Note, Book Review, etc.). There is no restriction on the length of the papers and we encourage scientists to publish their results in as much detail as possible.

About This Topic
Upcoming insight into understanding cancer genetics and epigenetic aberration of different type of cancers. Cancer is heterogeneous disease arise from defects in the structures of cells, aberration of genes, or alteration in key cellular pathways that regulate proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis of normal cells. The mutations in cancer are usually due to gain-of-function of proto-oncogenes becomes oncogenes and/or loss function of tumor suppressor genes. Epigenetic mechanism also plays critical role in altering the patterns and levels of protein expression of certain genes, chromatin modifying protein, DNA methylation and patterns of gene expression in cancer cells. Although diverse mutations and gene expression changes have been implicated in cancer pathogenesis, the defects appear to limited number of gene alterations such as RAS, EGFR, PTEN, p53, Akt, PTEN and others; however, the accumulated multiple genetics and epigenetics defects play fundamental role in cancer initiation and progression.
This issue primary aims is to understand how persons genetics, chemical carcinogenesis, environment, gut microbes, dietary factors, and epigenetic alterations play important role in cancer initiation and progression.

The autophagy mechanism recycles the damaged and long-standing macromolecular substrates and thus maintains cellular homeostatic and proteostatic conditions. Autophagy can be an unavoidable target in cancer therapy because its deregulation leads to cancer formation and progression. Cancer can be controlled by regulating autophagy at different [...]

The occurrence of various mutation patterns, such as changes in the DNA sequence and the loss of some sequences, is called a “mutational signature,” and they represent the molecular fingerprints that exist for the type of mutation occurring in a specific gene. Our study elucidates the correlations of mutational signatures in [...]
