Researchers Close in on an Epigenetic Mechanism for Carcinogenesis
November 28, 2016

Epigenetic lesions, and not just genetic mutations, can cause brain cancer, and one important implication of that observation is that precision-medicine genetic and genomic tools will miss epigenetic lesions that may drive tumor growth or drug resistance.
