If improved diagnostic tests are developed from this project, is the effort worth it if the cancers diagnosed have no treatment available?

Summary Introduction

To determine: If the development of improved diagnostic tests is worth the effort if the diagnosed cancers have no treatment available.

Introduction: Cancer is defined as the condition in which the cells start showing abnormal and uncontrolled growth. The main cause of this condition is mutation in cells which affect the property of contact inhibition among various kinds of cells. The substances causing the mutation are called carcinogens. Genomic sequencing is an important tool for the diagnosis of cancer.

Explanation of Solution

The project is based on studying the changes in the genome of the person that is responsible for causing cancer. This project also covers the study of RNA for sequencing. Studying these genes not only help in providing new diagnostic techniques but these studies also help in discovering new paths for the treatment of these diseases...
