New omics technologies, including next generation sequencing, have revolutionized our understanding on the mutational landscape of cancer. The genomes of cancer cells, or DNA, obtained from tissues, circulating cells or circulating DNA can now be sequenced at unprecedented depth, at relatively low cost. These techniques allow for better selection of therapy and for avoidance of emergence of drug resistance in many patients. This session will discuss the opportunities and limitations of using high throughput genomics to select the most effective therapies.
