Rapid advances in next-generation sequencing technology are revolutionizing approaches to genomic and epigenomic studies of skin. Deep sequencing of cutaneous malignancies reveals heavily mutagenized genomes with large numbers of low-prevalence mutations and multiple resistance mechanisms to targeted therapies. Next-generation sequencing approaches have already paid rich dividends in identifying the genetic causes of dermatologic disease, both in heritable mutations and the somatic aberrations… CONTINUE READING
