    Tissue Variety in Breast Cancer Research

    By Samantha Bussell Sep 08, 2016
    Resistance to estrogen-deprivation therapy is common in ER+ breast cancer tissue. To better understand this evolution to resistance, genomic characterization of multiple primary tumors is imperative for comprehensive results and identifying therapeutic targets (http://www.nature.com/ncomms/2016/160809/ncomms12498/full/ncomms12498.html#acknowledgments). For researchers, attaining samples that have been confirmed for diagnosis and receptor expression supports the inherent need for accuracy in tissue characterization. Read More >
