The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network team uncovered new mutations and amplifications in their cohort of primary cervical cancers.

The study also found that esophageal squamous cell carcinomas resemble head and neck cancer, while esophageal adenocarcinomas are similar to gastric cancers.

Melanoma patients with just one copy of the MC1R gene variant linked to red hair harbor 42 percent more mutations in their tumors than expected.
