Cancer genomics is a growing area of research, and the computational tools we use are a powerful way to find new genes involved in cancer
In cancer cells, small changes in the genetic letters can change what a genomic word or sentence means. A changed letter can cause the cell to make a protein that doesn’t allow the cell to work as it should. These proteins can make cells grow quickly and cause damage to neighboring cells. By studying the cancer genome, scientists can discover what letter changes are causing a cell to become a cancer.
analyzes 30 genes (including BRCA1 and BRCA2) to help men and women understand their risk for the most common hereditary cancers, including breast, ovarian, colon, and pancreatic cancer. Having an understanding of an elevated genetic risk allows you to work with your doctor to form an individualized plan to prevent or detect cancer at an early stage
