NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Two research teams have mapped out genes that cancer cells depend on for growth and survival.

By then examining which cells survived, the researchers could gauge whether cancer cells were dependent upon the silenced genes. The teams reported their results today in separate Cell papers.
