Why are researchers going beyond mutations to study cancer?

Cancer is an incredibly complex system, and researchers in Toronto have found that mutations alone are not enough to fully understand diverse cancers.

Each layer of regulation – genome, epigenome, transcriptome, and proteome – reveals part of the full picture.

There are even interactions between different cell types in the microenvironment that matter tremendously for tumor biology, and methods like single cell or spatial can be used to study them.
