Cancer -omics


A lot of information can be collected about tumors these days. Think about mapping all genes (the genome), detecting whether these genes are ‘on’ or ‘off’ (the transcriptome), how these genes are regulated (the epigenome), which proteins are present (the proteome) or which sugar structures play an important role in the cancer cell (the glycome). The collection of all this information is called the cancer-ome (because all nouns end in –ome). Many researchers within CRIG focus on one or more of these ‘-omes’ and are listed below.
