The successful implementation of the human genome project has raised the hope to understand molecular basis of various complex disease phenotypes in much greater depth. One of the immediate beneficiaries of this huge body of information would be the field of cancer research. Thus, it is timely to review some of the contemporary issues in cancer research in the Special Issue of Cancer Genetics and Genomics... It is hoped that topics discussed in this special issue by various experts in the field would be useful to its readers and help them to generate new thoughts.
