Understanding tumor heterogeneity with gene expression analysis

Strategies to counter tumor heterogeneity are high on the wish list of oncologists and cancer researchers. Within a single tumor, cells can differ in size, proliferation rate and ability to metastasize. Most significantly for physicians and patients, they can also differ in their sensitivity to chemotherapy. How can we best understand and investigate this aspect… Read article →
