Genomics and Its Growing Impact in Cancer Research

By Administrator at 16 Jan 2019

Tumors, just like our bodies, contain genes and other genetic material as a part of their DNA. A genome is an organism’s complete set of DNA. Genomics explores an organism’s behavior at the molecular level, studying how an organism forms and its potential for growth, change, and playing with others. Why does a cell go from being healthy to being destructive? What causes a cell to gravitate towards or away from other cells? What is the likelihood of the cell becoming aggressive and spreading? Will a cancerous tumor’s molecular structure enable it to evade, hide, or disguise to withstand attack from the immune system or resist treatments?
