Human cancer is caused by the accumulation of mutations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. To catalog the genetic changes that occur during tumorigenesis, we isolated DNA from 11 breast and 11 colorectal tumors and determined the sequences of the genes in the Reference Sequence database in these samples. Based on analysis of exons representing 20,857 transcripts from 18,191 genes, we conclude that the genomic landscapes of breast and colorectal cancers are composed of a handful of… 
Mutational profiling of cancer candidate genes in glioblastoma, melanoma and pancreatic carcinoma reveals a snapshot of their genomic landscapes
TLDR
The mutational profiles of 27 ‘hill’ CAN genes in glioblastoma, melanoma and pancreatic carcinoma are evaluated by sequencing the exons previously found mutated by Wood and colleagues, suggesting that ‘ hill’ type CAN genes are not frequently shared by different tumor types and that their mutation patterns are tissue specific.
Mutation Mechanisms of Human Breast Cancer
TLDR
The results suggest that 2-14 mutations in the genome of breast stem cells are required for normal breaststem cells to become a malignant cell, and 3 gene mutations are most likely to occur in the development of female breast cancer.
Mutational spectra of human cancer
TLDR
Evidence that can be used to reconstruct the etiology of human cancers from mutations found in tumors is summarized to produce mutational spectra similar to those in TP53 but have unveiled a previously unrecognized common G to C transversion mutation signature at GpA dinucleotides in breast cancers and several other cancers.
Sequence Mutations of Genes Pertaining to Malignancy in Cancer
Cancer is a complex disease where various types of molecular aberrations drive the development and progression of malignancies. Among the diverse molecular aberrations, inherited and somatic
Defining the blueprint of the cancer genome.
TLDR
Systematic sequencing studies have been performed on gene families involved in signal transduction in several tumor types, and have been extended to include the majority of protein-coding genes in breast and colorectal cancers, and identified new genes and pathways that had not been linked previously to human cancer.
Mutation spectrum in human colorectal cancers and potential functional relevance
TLDR
Evidence of the utility of RNA-Seq in mutation screening in cancer studies is provided, and a list of candidate genes for future colorectal cancer diagnosis and treatment is suggested.

TLDR
A historical perspective on the identification of somatic alterations in the pre‐ and post‐genomic eras is provided, with a particular emphasis on recent pioneering studies that have provided unprecedented insights into the genomic landscape of human cancer.
Influence of Mutation Frequency on Mutation Profile in Colon Cancer
TLDR
This research project compared types of mutations, genes targeted and specificity of gene targeting in high versus low mutation frequency tumors to support the hypothesis that there are qualitative and quantitative differences in the mutation spectrum of colorectal cancers based on the frequency of mutation in the individual tumors.

Purpose: Somatic mutations occur at early stages of adenoma and accumulate throughout colorectal cancer progression. The aim of this study was to characterize the mutational landscape of stage II
The molecular pathology of cancer
TLDR
How disease subtypes can influence therapy and the implications of the impending molecular diagnostic revolution from the point of view of the patients, clinicians, and the diagnostic and pharmaceutical companies are discussed.

TLDR
Recently, many cellular oncogenes were identified in human cancerous cells by the DNA transfection method, some of which were found to contain sequences related with already known viral oncogenees.
THE CANCER CELL
TLDR
Investigations compel the view that the ratio of the vital capacity to the body length, trunk length, chest circumference, surface area or weight or any combination of these measurements, is too variable to admit of any workable standard or normal value.

TLDR
I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.

抗原变异可使得多种致病微生物易于逃避宿主免疫应答。表达在感染红细胞表面的恶性疟原虫红细胞表面蛋白1(PfPMP1)与感染红细胞、内皮细胞、树突状细胞以及胎盘的单个或多个受体作用,在黏附及免疫逃避中起关键的作用。每个单倍体基因组var基因家族编码约60种成员,通过启动转录不同的var基因变异体为抗原变异提供了分子基础。
