Study reveals every bowel tumor and bowel cancer cell have unique genetic fingerprints

New research on bowel cancer has shown that every tumor is different, and that every cell within the tumor is genetically unique. In the first study of its kind, researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, UK and Hubrecht Institute (KNAW) in The Netherlands, used the latest single cell and organoid technologies to understand the mutational processes of the disease. Reported in Nature, the study could help researchers target cancer-specific processes for prevention or treatment.
