Study of mutation order may change understanding of how tumors develop: Paper envisions new direction in cancer research

Cancers most commonly arise because of a series of two to five mutations in different genes that combine to cause a tumor. Evidence from a growing number of experiments focused on truncal mutations -- the first mutations in a given sequence -- suggests a new direction in understanding the origins of cancer.
