Born to be bad: researchers identify the genetic roots of ‘killer’ kidney cancers

In a landmark genetics study, a multi-institutional group of researchers have uncovered three distinct evolutionary paths for kidney cancer, allowing them to determine whether a tumor will be aggressive. The findings were recently published in Cell.

The findings arose from three studies. In the first two papers, the researchers analyzed more than 1000 tumor samples from 100 clear cell renal cell carcinoma patients in order to reconstruct the sequence of genetic events that led to the cancer in each patient.
