Virtual Issue: Cancer Research

Acta Biochimica et Biophysica Sinica (ABBS) publishes research articles in Biochemistry, Biophysics and Molecular Biology. In recent years, biomedical research has been a flourishing research field in the world. So, ABBS has been encouraging authors to publish articles in biomedical research, especially in the field of cancer research. In the previous two years, ABBS has published many articles in the field of cancer research. The Editor of ABBS would like to recommend some of them to our readers. These articles include review articles focusing on the most recent techniques in cancer research, such as proteomics and systems biology, on biomarkers for cancer diagnose, such as microRNAs, and on treatments of cancers, such as stem cell therapy, radiotherapy and nanoparticle therapy. They also include research articles concerning several kinds of cancers which are prevalent nowadays, such as breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, and nasopharyngeal carcinoma, etc.
