Abstract: Massively parallel sequencing approaches are fundamentally impacting biomedical research in multiple areas of focused inquiry. Cancer genomics is notably impacted because of the incredible insights obtained from the tumor-to-normal comparison. We now have approaches to sequence and integrate data from whole genomes, transcriptomes and other 'omes' to derive a fuller picture of tumor heterogeneity and tumor evolution. Furthermore we can predict, in a clinical setting, outcomes and therapeutic options based on each patient's somatic genotype. My lecture will feature latest discoveries and translational insights made possible by next generation cancer genomics.
