Researchers associated with the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network will publish more than 25 papers this week to discuss findings from the initiative.

Researchers found that ADAR works by stabilizing the FAK gene, which is one of a subset involved in cell migration pathways.

A new analysis hints that adenocarcinomas or squamous cell carcinomas may have certain overlapping expression patterns, regardless of the tissue of origin.
