Penn Software Helps to Identify Course of Cancer Metastasis, Tumor "Evolution"

Tumors also differ among patients with the same type of cancer, so how is a physician able to prescribe a tailored regimen for the patient? Researchers developed Canopy, an approach to infer the evolutionary track of tumor cells by surveying two types of mutations - somatic copy number alterations and single-nucleotide alterations - derived from multiple samples taken from a single patient.
