    Gene expression changes from meth drug treatment

    Individuals with methamphetamine dependence treated with the drug topimirate—a treatment for alcoholism—those who respond to the drug show different gene expression patterns in processes underlying addiction compared to non-responders and those treated with placebos.

    New subtypes from existing prostate cancer signature

    Validation of an existing prostate cancer gene expression profile has identified two groups, associated with good or poor prognosis, rather than the previous four 4 subtypes, and highlights the importance of taking sample tissue composition into account.

Scope

BMC Medical Genomics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of functional genomics, genome structure, genome-scale population genetics, epigenomics, proteomics, systems analysis, and pharmacogenomics in relation to human health and disease.

BMC Medical Genomics is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.

Editor's profile

Struan Grant

Following posts in the UK, Australia, Iceland and Germany, Struan Grant has been the Associate Director of the Center for Applied Genomics at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia since 2006. His current work focuses on metabolic disease, with a specific focus on pediatrics. Utilizing high-throughput genotyping technology, his goals include isolating genes involved in obesity and bone strength. Both of these phenotypes are known to be strongly determined by genetic factors and distillation of this component should be easier to determine in children, where the relatively short period of their lifetime limits the impact of environmental exposure.
