Researchers from Victor Moreno’s group have issued the first predictive risk model of colon and rectal cancer based on Spanish data that combines genetic and lifestyle information. Their work, published in Scientific Reports, highlights the importance of improving lifestyle to reduce the risk of colon cancer and suggests using a combination of lifestyle and genetic […]

This article, whose main author is David Cordero, published in BMC journal, shows how the dysregulation of transcriptional programs leads to cell malfunctioning and can have an impact on cancer development. The study aims to characterize global differences between transcriptional regulatory programs of normal and tumor colon cells. The results show that the tumor network exhibits […]
