“Virtually every piece of cancerous DNA we examined had this highly predictable pattern,” he said.
If you think of a cell as a hard-drive, then the new findings suggest the disease needs certain genetic programs, or “apps,” in order to run.
“It seems to be a general feature for all cancer. It’s a startling discovery,” Trau said. “The test to detect cancerous cells can be performed in 10 minutes.”
This will help aid in detecting it early, so you have to really give it to those who discovered this.
I hope it pans out, think of all the lives it could save.
