Evolutionary principles used to model cancer mutations, discover potential therapeutic targets

Moffitt Cancer Center researchers are taking a unique approach to understanding and investigating cancer by utilizing evolutionary principles and computational modeling to examine the role of specific genetic mutations in the Darwinian struggle among tumor and normal cells during cancer growth. Cells become malignant by acquiring genetic mutations that lead to increased survival and reproduction. […]
