Single-Cell Genome Sequencing Provides New Insights into Deadly Cancers

By October 28, 2022No Comments

Researchers from UBC and the BC Cancer Research Institute (BCCRI) have uncovered new insights into how a dangerous subset of breast and ovarian cancers evolve — insights that could help us better understand how to treat these aggressive cancers.

By sequencing the genomes of individual cells from the biopsies of 158 BC Cancer patients, the researchers were able to observe the processes of evolution as it occurred within individual cells.
