Very exciting:http://sciencenews.org/view/generic/id/38320/title/First_com...Scientists decipher each of the 3 billion DNA bases from the genome of an acute myeloid leukemia tumor accessThese acute myeloid leukemia cells are from the bone marrow of the female patient whose complete genome was sequenced in the first decoding of a complete cancer genome. The genetic study implicated eight genes not previously associated with this form of cancer.Timothy LeyFor the first time, a complete cancer genome, and incidentally a complete female genome, has been decoded, scientists report online Nov. 5 in Nature. In a study made possible by faster, cheaper and more sensitive methods for sequencing DNA, the researchers pinpoint eight new genes that may cause a cell to turn cancerous.
