Description

Recent advances in DNA sequencing technology are making their way into clinical laboratories, allowing a growing list of ‘actionable’ cancer-related genomic alterations to be identified in routine biopsy samples. This presentation will review these new technologies and how they are being applied in the analysis of DNA, as well as RNA, to guide the use of targeted cancer therapies and immuno-oncology drugs. In addition, novel approaches to examining the immune micro-environment of solid tumors will be discussed.
