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.
