Novel digital sequencing technology promises to advance oncology research

As research uncovers the underlying mutations and mechanisms that drive oncogenesis and cancer progression, it’s becoming clearer that cures are likely to come not from a single silver bullet, but from identifying each individual’s personal cancer drivers. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is the leading strategy for finding sequence variants and fusion genes responsible for cancer, and targeted… Read article →


The key to a deeper understanding of cancer – single cell genomics

Three hundred years ago, the father of microbiology, Anton van Leeuwenhoek, observed single-celled organisms for the first time. Three hundred years later, advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) and whole genome amplification (WGA) technologies now enable us to decode the genetic differences between single cells. This ability has tremendous implications for the field of cancer research. Nowadays we… Read article →
