Breast Cancer Evolution Through the Lens of Single-Cell Genomics

April 20, 2021 03:00 p.m. - 04:00 p.m. ET
Virtual

In this webinar, MD Anderson Cancer Center Professor, Dr. Nicholas Navin, will present on breast cancer evolution through the lens of single-cell genomics.

Dr. Navin’s group continues to pioneer the development of novel technologies for performing single-cell DNA and RNA sequencing, in addition to innovative computational and statistical methods for analyzing the resulting large-scale data sets. These methods are being applied to study cancer evolution in the context of invasion, metastasis, and therapy resistance.
