ecancer reporter Peter Goodwin talks to Dr Rosanna Lau about the contribution of analytical, pre-analytical and intra-tumoural heterogeneity to variance in gene expression measurements from human breast cancers.

Her new study has revealed the clearest picture yet of precisely how much measurement variation influences gene expression profiles of breast cancer.

The results show, for the first time, which gene expression measurements may benefit from pooling of biopsies from a single tumour.

These findings represent an important step toward allowing doctors to more precisely tailor an individual’s treatment to a detailed analysis of their tumour’s gene expression.
