Introduction to Genomic Technologies for Cancer Research

Genomic technologies have emerged as an extremely useful tools in cancer research. International projects such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium and The Cancer Genome Atlas, tasked with mapping the biological science of dozens of tumor types, would not have been possible without these tools. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) and high-density microarrays are used to study … Continue reading Introduction to Genomic Technologies for Cancer Research
