Reprogramming the genetic code at the transcriptional level: the key in cancer
14 Oct 2016
Researchers at IRB Barcelona and ICREA professors Raúl Méndez, Salvador Aznar Benitah and Eduard Batlle have co-headed the B·Debate. At the end of the event, they spoke to Gaceta Médica about the advances made in cancer epigenetics.
La Vanguardia reports on a recent study published by Marco Milán’s lab in the journal Developmental Cell. On the basis of their findings in the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster), the scientists have concluded that the chromosomal instability characteristic of tumours can promote invasive behaviour in cancer.
