Cancer phenomics, the systematic acquisition and objective documentation of host and/or somatic cancer phenotypic data at many levels, is a young field compared with other molecular-based 'omics'. Two relatively advanced phenomic paradigms are associated with phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) and rearranged during transfection (RET), genes that are associated with cancer predisposition syndromes in addition to developmental disorders. The phenomic characterization of PTEN and RET… CONTINUE READING
