The creation of a global database of DNA will forget about chemotherapy for cancer patients. Scientists plan to study 100 of thousands of human genomes over the next 20 years.
The basis of the cancer - early diagnosis of the tumor process. The sooner the doctor finds cancer and is accepted for its treatment, the better the chances for recovery. If in the early stages, you can talk about 90-99% of cases of recovery, then launched the cancer is a death in 90% of cases.
Just a project on the interpretation of genomes invested more than 300 thousand dollars. Scientists will collect and analyze genetic information of patients with cancer. This will allow a more accurate diagnosis of future cancer patients.
To date, selected 75 thousand people for research. Scientists will take from each tissue sample and analyze it DNA.
