Combined Physical And Genetic Map Finds Cancer's 'Ignition Key'

Wednesday, May 7, 2008 - 10:21 in Biology & Nature

Whole-organ maps that superimpose genetic information over the terrain of cancerous bladders chart the molecular journey from normal cell to invasive cancer. By geographically relating an organ's varied tissues -- normal, precancerous and malignant -- to their underlying genetic variation or regulation, the team also identified a crucial new category of genes that launches the process of cancer development.
