Computer Model Predicts Course of Prostate Cancer

Understanding how a healthy cell turns into a malignant one has been a challenge for scientists. Researchers at Charité - Universitätsmedizin in Berlin may have come close to solving this enigma. In a study published in Cancer Cell, the researchers analyzed the tumor genomes of 300 prostate cancer patients by examining each molecular profile, sequencing encoded material within the cells' genetic substance, documenting chemical variations to the genetic code, and assessing the activity of specifi...
