Rsearchers create an analytic tool that opens a new frontier of cancer discovery

Gene coding regions constitute 2% of the human genome. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists have developed a computational tool to identify alterations that drive tumor formation in the remaining 98% of the genome. The method will aid discovery of oncogenes and advances in precision medicine for children and adults with cancer. The approach, detailed […]
