Researchers have taken apart genetic instructions within 30 different types of cancer, possibly paving the way for new treatments, according to findings published in Nature. "The information we have uncovered in this study has identified key weak spots of the cancer cells and will allow us to develop drugs that target the cancer and leave the healthy tissue undamaged," says study co-author Fiona Behan.
