Prostate Cancer Genome Map Shows Genes Tied to Seven Tumor Types, Broad Institute and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Reveal

Published: Feb 10, 2011

Bloomberg -- A complete genetic map of prostate cancer has been charted for the first time by scientists, an achievement that may expand understanding of the disease and lead to new treatments. Scientists looked at seven kinds of prostate tumors, using a technology that allowed them to sequence the full genetic plan, and compared them to sequences from normal tissue samples, in a study published in the journal Nature.
