Analysis of thousands of tumors from NHS patients has identified a ‘treasure trove’ of new clues about the causes of cancer. In the biggest study of its kind, researchers at Cambridge University Hospitals looked at the genomes of more than 12,000 people with cancer in England. They spotted 58 new patterns in their DNA, called …
