Is already pushing the information picked up by whole-genome sequencing, researchers tumors due to their genetic makeup, rather than their location in the body to be classified. In patients with breast cancer, for example, Mardis and her colleagues numerous numerous driver mutations in genes not previously associated with breast tumors.
Mardis said that develop the sequencing of the entire genome of cancer cells necessarily assembling an accurate picture of the nature of cancer cells. When the researchers sequenced only the small part of the genome that contains genes, they did not have the statistical power, .Mayo Clinic College of Medicine into Rochester, Minnesota, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and Memorial Sloan – Kettering Cancer in New York City.
