Abstract

Alterations in gene sequences, expression levels and protein structure or function have been associated with every type of cancer. These 'molecular markers' can be useful in detecting cancer, determining prognosis and monitoring disease progression or therapeutic response. But what is the best way to identify molecular markers and can they be easily incorporated into the clinical setting?
