Cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide and more than 100 types are described so far. This disease can be caused by environmental factors (smoking, obesity, radiation, infections, etc.) and de novo and inherited mutations. However most cancerous cells are derived from gene mutations in oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes leading to the abnormal growth or proliferation of cells.

The study of genes and mutations and how they contribute to the development, progression, and metastasis of cancer is called oncogenomics. Within this field, scientists make use of high throughput screening and other technologies to systematically identify genes which can cause certain cancers. This type of research leads to new understandings of this disease and contributes to the diagnosis, the prediction of the clinical outcome and the discovery of new therapeutic targets for cancers.
