Summary - SNPs and Cancer Research


Armed with data from the SNP Map, cancer researchers across the country are looking for correlations between SNPs and precancerous conditions, SNPs and drug resistance in chemotherapy, SNPs and cancer susceptibility, and SNPs and drug response.

There is much work ahead, but there is also much hope that these and other research findings will result in improved health care for all.
