NLM researchers uncover role of repetitive DNA and protein sequences in tumor evolution
Discovery may be useful in cancer diagnosis
A team of researchers from the National Library of Medicine and collaborating academic research institutions developed a method to measure a type of gene mutation involved in the evolution of cancer. This type of mutation, called “repeat instability,” may be useful in early cancer diagnosis. Learn more.
