Description

The Profile research study is creating one of the largest databases of genetic abnormalities in cancer. More than 5,000 tumor samples have been genetically sequenced and the results are beginning to shed more light on just what makes certain cancers tick. In this video, scientists show how genetic testing in cancer happens -- from tumor sample collection to data analysis -- and talk about the promise that the technology holds for cancer research and care.
