Liver cancer research provides insight to genomic diversity

Researchers from A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore and National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) have discovered that the genetic characteristics of liver cancer tumours can vary widely across different patients, and also within a single tumour. The findings have provided doctors with fresh insights into potentially adopting more targeted and effective treatments for patients.

This latest finding is from a collaborative study is supported by the National Medical Research Council (NMRC) Translational and Clinical Research (TCR) flagship programme Precision Medicine in Liver Cancer across Asia-Pacific Network, (PLANET). It was recently published in Nature Communications.
