Understanding cancer genomics

Cancer Genomics

Are you looking to understand the diversity in the genetic abnormalities found within cancers of a single type and tumor mutational burden in metastatic cases? Or to identify which genetic changes initiate cancer development and discover rare genetic alterations – maybe using cancer DNA methylation to investigate cancer epigenetics. Or is your goal to understand the role of the adaptive immune system: when it is intact and how it mobilizes to fight cancer. Do you need to manage and analyze the vast amounts of data involved in genomic studies?

You can rely on QIAGEN to provide the tools and in-depth understanding of technologies for cancer genomics. That allows you to speed up your cancer genomics research and helps you to accelerate your insight journey.
