Most Important BRCA1/BRCA2-Related Research Papers of 2011 – Nomination #2
Here is the 2nd of 15 nominations from which we will select the final 10 research papers discussed in the BRCAscoop 2011 Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Research Report:
The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network. Integrated genomic analyses of ovarian carcinoma. Nature 2011; 474:609-15.
This paper describes a landmark study by The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network that involved the study and description of molecular changes in hundreds of ovarian cancers in absolutely staggering scale. Although there are some potential near-term implications, this nominated paper is probably most important because of its descriptions of molecular abnormalities that may influence ways in which ovarian cancer is both categorized and treated in the somewhat more distant future.
