Epigenome Wide Associations Studies result in lists of potential biomarkers. These molecular epigenetic changes not only improve early diagnosis, but also offer novel ways to stratify and monitor patients for and during treatments. This section on Biomarkers is particularly welcoming identification and prospective validation studies of epigenetic biomarkers, especially in non-malignant diseases. Topics include, but are not limited to, epigenome-wide association studies of exposure, lifestyle factors and disease, mitochondrial methylation, mQTLS and diagnostic technology development.
