The most important pathways
QIAGEN provides a broad range of assay technologies for cancer research, enabling analysis of gene expression and regulation, epigenetic modification, genotyping, and signal transduction pathway activation. For every type of cancer, there are six hallmarks: self-sufficiency in growth signals, resistance to growth inhibitory signals and anti-cancer therapy, evasion of programmed cell death, unlimited replication capability, sustained ability for angiogenesis, and invasion and metastasis. Since multiple pathways are dysfunctional in cancers, and cancers accumulate new oncogenic mutations as they progress, researchers require more research tools that profile multiple biological events simultaneously. Solutions optimized for these research studies are organized into more focused research topics, shown below.
