How tumor progression relates to genomic heterogeneity

In Genome Research this week, a study out of Michael Wigler's lab at Cold Spring Harbor has looked at how tumor progression relates to genomic heterogeneity. In a collaboration between scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the Joint BioEnergy Institute, and the Joint Genome Institute, they have constructed a single-base resolution transcriptome map of Sulfolobus solfataricus P2, a well-studied model archaeal organism.
