A genome-based strategy uncovers frequent BRAF mutations in melanoma
Pollock, Pamela M. & Meltzer, Paul S. (2002) A genome-based strategy uncovers frequent BRAF mutations in melanoma. Cancer Cell, 2(1), pp. 5-7.
Using a genome-scanning approach to search for oncogenes, a recent report identifies somatic mutations in the signaling gene BRAF that are particularly prevalent in melanoma.
