Cancer progresses by acquiring mutations that increase cell survival. Sequencing single cells from a heterogeneous tumor mass and its metastases provides individual snapshots that reflect this evolutionary process, allowing researchers to identify mutations that drive cancer cell progression. In this webinar, Nicholas Navin and Lars Velten will discuss the importance of studying clonal cancer cell evolution, how single cell analysis helps researchers identify cancer driver gene mutations, and the potential unlocked by recent discoveries in the field.

Topics to be covered

  • Single cell technologies to study the co-evolution of cancer cells and their microenvironment during breast cancer progression
  • Identifying leukemic cancer stem cells with single cell multiomics and clonal tracking
