Knowledge about the causes of cancer and interventions to prevent and manage the disease is extensive and is continually growing. Whilst many patients now have improved prognosis if their cancer is detected early and treated adequately, new research is being regularly published on preventing and curing cancer. Over the last few years, dramatic reductions in the cost of sequencing as well advances in sequencing technologies have enabled key insights into the genomic alterations and somatic mutations that lead to cancer and accompany disease progression. See also the PLOS Medicine Special Issue on Cancer Genomics, guest edited by Dr. Elaine Mardis and Dr. Marc Ladanyi.
