[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.
