About this book

Latest generation sequencing revolutionizes the fields of cancer research and oncology. This follow-up volume focuses more extensively on single cell sequencing of cancer and trials in drug resistance. Another exciting feature is the bioinformatics tools given, that can be used on cancer genome studies. Scientists around the world are attempting to find the root cause of cancer. A reasonable cancer treatment plan and potential cure is more optimistic now with the unfolding of the cancer genome. The collective knowledge of how to leverage next generation sequencing in cancer research is paving the way. The important information provided in this volume will move the field forward in developing novel targeted cancer therapies.
