The cure for cancer is an on-going global problem to solve. Scientists from Cancer Research UK have recently announced a new plan for tackling the humungous task of analysing all the data. This is a necessary task in order to move forward with the development of Cancer treatment drugs.
Carlos Caldas at Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Institute explains: “We’re making great progress in understanding the genetic reasons cancer develops. But the clues to why some drugs will work and some won’t are held in data that needs to be analysed by the human eye – and this could take years.”
