BC Breast Cancer Discovery

Big news from BC where researchers have decoded the entire genome of a patient’s metastasized breast cancer.  That’s not a grammatical malfunction — it really was just one patient. I don’t pretend to understand genetic mapping, but the scientific community seems pretty excited about this, so let’s hope it translates into those important “advances in personalized treatments and drug therapies” soon.  http://www.theprovince.com/health/researchers+make+breast+cancer+discovery/2079353/story.html
