Three research teams profiled proteomic, genomic, and other features in lung adenocarcinomas in Asia and other parts of the world, including cases in never-smokers.

A new UK research center is to focus on preventing cancers from developing treatment resistance, New Scientist reports.

Using exome or transcriptome data from more than 400 metastatic, castration-resistant prostate cancer cases, researchers identified survival-related alterations in the RB1 gene.

The group plans to use the assay for translational studies on metastasis and drug resistance initially and to develop a clinical version later on.

Researchers found relevant non-coding mutations in colorectal cancer cell lines by systematically profiling chromosome interactions at promoter fragments.

These and previously uncovered multiple myeloma risk loci may influence disease by affecting developmental transcriptional regulators.

The Path It'll Take

An Institute of Cancer Research-led team has developed a machine-learning tool to predict how tumors may evolve, according to the Telegraph.

Funding Lost

Researchers uncovered subclones within pediatric glioblastoma and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma patients that influence the abilities of neighboring cells.

Using data for more than 140,000 individuals, researchers narrowed in on 63 new prostate cancer-associated loci and established a polygenic score linked to enhanced risk.
