  • Pancreatic cancer is a highly lethal malignancy that presents multiple technical challenges for genomic studies. Next-generation sequencing and its applications have proven successful in the study of other tumour types, unravelling the interplay between DNA and RNA changes that are unique to the tumour. This Review outlines the genomic studies performed to date that have explored the somatic alterations of pancreatic cancer genomes, setting the stage for the introduction of our current… CONTINUE READING
