“Cryptic Promoters” Drive Stomach Cancer

Using a new technique called Nano-ChIPseq, scientists have found that stomach cancer is driven by mutations in regions of the genome known as cryptic promoters.

AsianScientist (Jul 11, 2014) – Scientists at A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) have developed a technology that shows how genes in healthy stomach cells are altered when they become cancerous. The study has been published in the journal Nature Communications.
