MMRC genomics initiative provides first in-depth look at multiple myeloma genomeTags: cancer, genomics, tgen
[Source: Earth Times] - An analysis of 38 myeloma tumor genomes surveyed through extensive next-generation sequencing by the Broad Institute has revealed intriguing recurrent mutations that point to important cellular pathways which contribute to multiple myeloma. These data were revealed during an oral presentation entitled “First Impressions of the Multiple Myeloma Genome” by Todd R. Golub, MD, Director of the Cancer Program at the Eli and Edythe L. Broad Institute. Dr. Golub’s presentation was one of two oral communications on the MMRC Genomics Initiative presented at the 2010 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) in Washington, DC.
Now available: “Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap 2014-2025: Advancing the Biosciences and Improving Health Outcomes,” is now available along with its supplement, “Summary of Goals, Strategies, and Potential Actions.” An overview by Walter Plosila, Ph.D., Battelle senior advisor, is also available. The updated Roadmap provides a long-term strategy for Arizona to achieve bioscience success over the next decade.
