Liquid Biopsies

 

“Thankfully next generation sequencing is so sensitive if you sequence the same fragment of DNA thousands and thousands of times, you will find that tumor’s specific DNA. And almost all of the cases in which we can do that the molecular alteration found in blood matches the molecular alteration that is found in the tumor. That is why people are starting to refer to this as ‘liquid biopsies'”
