Brain Cancer Genetic Network IDs Prognostic Genes | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A team of American and German researchers has used a systems biology approach to integrate various genomic and clinical features of brain cancer. In the process, the team found a set of non-random mutations that often co-exist in cancer — and pulled out a handful of genes in the brain cancer network that were linked to patient survival.

The group's research appears in a pair of papers in today's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
