Investigators are studying samples from a group of 100 patients to try to lock down patterns in circulating tumor DNA that can be used to validate monitoring methods for the clinic.

A phylogenetic analysis that included multiple samples per patient suggests overlapping driver mutations make their way into multiple metastases in each patient.

Array-based copy number analysis of primary intrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas and matched lymph node metastases revealed a tumor cluster with ties to survival.

Researchers characterized genetic, transcriptomic, and clinical features in advanced prostate cancers that emerged from treatment.

New genetic studies are providing insights into the molecular changes that occur as benign moles transition to melanoma and spread to other parts of the body by metastasis.

The researchers used 10X Genomics' linked-read genome sequencing approach to home in on rearrangements that affect the androgen receptor locus and its enhancer.

Exome sequencing on tumors from metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer cases responding to immunotherapy led to homologous recombination defects.

Molecular analysis of metastatic CRC in the liver has identified three molecular subtypes that can be coupled with clinical risk scores to inform patient risk.

Bringing together more than 1,000 prostate cancer exomes, researchers uncovered almost 100 significantly mutated genes, including drivers mutated in a fraction of tumors.

With sequence data for hundreds of advanced breast cancer samples, investigators identified genetic alterations shared with — and distinct from — those in primary tumors.
