Brief description Much effort has been invested in the sequencing of cancer genomes, leading to the identification of genes linked to aggressive subtypes. There is now a need to confirm the importance of these genes and to exploit these findings for patient therapies. We have identified a new cancer driver controlling an aggressive type of breast tumour which may act through one carbon/folate metabolism. We aim to map the inner workings of these cancers to devise effective targeted drugs for these patients.
