Monitoring cancer evolution through smart genomics and liquid biopsies

One of the major advantages of liquid biopsies is the ability to probe the same patient multiple times with low invasiveness. Thus, allowing us to monitor the evolution of the tumour and identify markers that indicate response and resistance to therapy. Here we show how the analysis of the chronological mutational landscape of tumours can offer new therapeutic approaches for limiting tumour recurrence.
