New Genetic Sequencing Hub in Australia – How Much Mesothelioma Tumor Sequencing to Follow?

Australia has a new genomics hub for sequencing DNA and tumors, as described in this July 14 story at its website. Vice-President Biden went over for its opening.

A goal? Exchange anonymized germline and somatic data on DNA (and more) for 60,000 persons with cancer. In view of the large amount of mesothelioma in Australia, one can only imagine how many persons with mesothelioma will be the subject of exchanges, papers, etc.

The mesothelioma data deluge will be arriving over the next few years.  Are you ready?
