Overview

Diagnoses termed "cancer" consist of hundreds of differentdiseases with as many constellations of genetic alterations. Genomictechnologies have made it possible to identify all of the tumor-specificmutations, to profile individual tumors at the DNA, RNA, and protein levels,and to test in cellular and animal systems the responses of particulargenotypes to particular drugs. Oncogenomics and allied disciplines haveidentified new targets for genotype-specific treatments and provided strategiesto validate these targets and to develop drugs. With the potential need tostratify patients by genotype, clinical testing of targeted drugs has becomemore complicated while expectations of patients, investors, and fundingagencies have become accelerated. Oncogenomics: Molecular Approaches to Canceroffers the first rigorous yet broadly accessible treatment of the impact ofgenomics on cancer research and care. Clearly written by world-renownedscientists in the field, and edited for overall cohesion, Oncogenomicsprogresses logically from molecular profiling to model systems, cancerpharmacology, and clinical trials. Oncogenomics

  • Covers cutting-edge issues such as array-based diagnostics, pharmaco-genomics, and molecularly targeted therapeutics
  • Includes discussions of ethical, legal, and social issues related to cancer genomics and clinical trials
  • Provides links to online oncogenomic resources and references

Recognizing the multidisciplinary character of Oncogenomics,the editors include an advanced introduction to cancer genetics and cancerpharmacology that makes accessible state-of-the-art topics such as expressionprofiling, SNPs in cancer, tissue microarrays, and chemical and geneticvalidation studies. Scientists, oncologists, and other healthcare professionals,as well as advanced students, will find Oncogenomics an essential resource forelucidating this exciting field.
