Simulations Help Study the Evolution of Cancer

A-D) Four main evolutionary modes in cancer. Red stars represent normal driver mutations such as single nucleotide mutations. A green star represents large-scale genetic alterations at the chromosomal or genomic level that produce copy number or structural abnormalities. E) An evolutionary model that explains the temporal shift of the principle generating ITH during colorectal tumorigenesis. Credit: © 2020 IMSUT, The University of Tokyo CC-BY
