Drawing on 30+ years of cancer research, QPCR, Next Generation Sequencing, Gene Expression, Western blotting the cancer community has accomplished a lot to narrow tens of thousands of genes to the ones that matter for the study of cancer.
Today, we are taking the next step in that journey with the introduction of our PanCancer Pathways Panel, a novel set of 700 essential genes representing all major cancer pathways including key driver genes.
Using a biology-guided, data-driven approach and applying basic co-expression principles we scored and ranked each gene based on its biological relevance to cancer and its role as an essential representation in one or more of the 13 canonical pathways.
We can now take this very complex disease and make it a bit easier to comprehend to Discover connections. Discover interactions. Discover function.
Customize with Panel-Plus option flexibility to include 30 genes of your choice
Drawing from data generated through TCGA and major thought leaders in the field each gene has been scored and ranked based on it’s biological relevance to cancer and its role as an essential representation of 13 canonical pathways.
