Cancer genetics and epigenetics

Cancer genetics and epigenetics refer to the study of genetic and epigenetic alterations that contribute to the development and progression of cancer. This scientific session explores the latest research on genetic and epigenetic changes in cancer cells, including mutations, chromosomal rearrangements, and alterations in DNA methylation and histone modification patterns. The session also covers the role of genetic and epigenetic factors in cancer risk and susceptibility, as well as the potential for targeted therapies based on these factors. Experts in the field will present their findings on cancer genetics and epigenetics, including the latest advancements in genome sequencing, gene editing, and personalized medicine.
