The fields of comparative cancer research and cancer evolution touch on diverse topics in oncology and are of interest both in human as well as comparative oncology, including through the use of cancer resistant animal models to understand pro- and anti-oncogenic pathways of cancer evolution. Furthermore topics on cancer-host coevolution, transmissible cancers and roles for a range of pathogens including viruses in cancer-host interplay, are an area of increasing exploration.
This Special Issue aims to collect state-of-the-art primary research studies and review articles from international experts and diverse leading groups in the field of cancers in human and across animal species to update our current understanding of cancer diversity (complexity, heterogeneity and interspecies diversity) and cancer evolution. Topics on cancers from human and animal models, cancer evolution, biomarker discovery, as well as diverse roles for viruses and other pathogens, on immunity and infection, in relation to oncology, are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
