Mutational Signatures Begin to Reveal Processes Underpinning Mutation Development | GenomeWeb

SAN DIEGO (GenomeWeb News) — Researchers are beginning to trace mutations present in tumors back to the processes that formed them.

Cancer-causing processes leave signs of their effects in the resulting tumors that researchers are starting to tease out, work that was described during a session at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting here.
