Punctuated evolution of canonical genomic aberrations in uveal melanoma.
 

Author(s): Matthew G Field, Michael A Durante, Hima Anbunathan, Louis Z Cai, Christina L Decatur, Anne M Bowcock, Stefan Kurtenbach, J William Harbour

Journal:

 

Cancer is thought to arise through the accumulation of genomic aberrations evolving under Darwinian selection. However, it remains unclear when the aberrations associated with metastasis emerge during tumor evolution. Uveal melanoma (UM) is the most common primary eye cancer and frequently ...
