Using array-based copy number profiles, the team characterized 134 samples from liver metastases in 45 individuals with colorectal cancer, uncovering heterogeneity in CNV patterns both within and between patients. It also saw ties between lower-than-usual tumor heterogeneity and enhanced survival times.
