Barrett oesophagus: Tracing the genetic pathway to oesophageal cancer

Two new studies published in Nature Genetics have evaluated the genetic changes involved in the progression from Barrett oesophagus to oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Both studies have used hypothesis-free driven techniques (wholeexome and whole-genome sequencing) in order to capture the transition towards cancer more systematically. “From a clinical… CONTINUE READING
