Gordon B. Mills, MD, PhD, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses assay of the genome in order to further measure DNA and RNA.

Mills says there is an incredible amount of new information arising from the cancer genome atlas, as well as similar programs in the academic community. Thus far, information has mostly focused on the DNA and RNA levels so far. Mills and his colleagues are investigating a protein-based analysis of the cancer genome.

This provides new information and opportunities that were not previously present, says Mills.
