A research duo from the University of Cambridge outlines a computational method for teasing apart clonal lineages in a tumor using single-cell sequencing data. The approach — known as the oncogenic nested effects model, or OncoNEM — looks for tumor subpopulations based on probabilistic models of mutation accumulation and inferred sequence patterns in individual cells to provide information on the genotypes and relationships between these intra-tumor clonal populations.
