Mutational landscape and significance across 12 major cancer types

from Nature

Researchers looked at 12 major types of cancer and identified 127 repeatedly mutated genes that seem to drive the development and progression of a range of tumors. The discovery sets the stage for devising new diagnostic tools and more personalized cancer treatments. The study, published in Nature, shows that some of the same genes commonly mutated in certain cancers also occur in seemingly unrelated tumors. For example, a gene mutated in 25 percent of leukemia cases in the study also was found in tumors of the breast, rectum, head and neck, kidney, lung, ovary and uterus. more
