The business office of Science, the world's leading peer-reviewed research journal, is partnering with Applied Biosystems, a division of Life Technologies Corporation, to produce a webinar on Advances in Cancer Genomics to be broadcast live online at 12 noon ET (4:00 GMT) April 30, 2009.

(PRWEB) April 15, 2009 -- The business office of Science, the world's leading peer-reviewed research journal, is partnering with Applied Biosystems, a division of Life Technologies Corporation, to produce a webinar on Advances in Cancer Genomics to be broadcast live online at 12 noon ET (4:00 GMT) April 30, 2009.

The webinar will feature a discussion of the latest advances in cancer genomics by a panel of experts including Sean Grimmond, Ph.D. of the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland, Australia; David Wheeler, Ph.D., of the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas; and John McPherson, Ph.D., of the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research in Toronto, Canada and moderated by Sean Sanders, Ph.D., the Commercial Editor for Science.

Cancer is a complex family of diseases, characterized by the deregulation or dysregulation of the normal control pathways for cellular growth and/or cell death. Despite advances, technological limitations or excessive cost have historically restricted research into causative factors. Next-generation genomic platforms now are enabling scientists to study individual genomes in more depth, giving them a better understanding of the mechanisms of tumorigenesis, metastasis, and therapeutic response.

"Obtaining fundamental sequence data from both tumor and normal tissue is essential for understanding the pathways that lead to cancer," says Dr. Sanders. "With this information in hand, the multitude of subtle genetic changes that allow for cancer initiation and progression can be uncovered."

During this webinar, the expert panel will: provide a general overview of current technologies applied in cancer genomics research, discuss new technologies being used to advance the study of cancer, share recent data on how new technologies are impacting research on cancer genomics, and answer live questions from an international audience of scientists and students.
