In this talk, Prof Colin Cooper will describe the approaches that he and his team use to better understand how cancer develops and spreads around the body, providing information that is leading to changes in clinical practice.
Prof Cooper is Professor of Cancer Genetics in the Norwich Medical School at the University of East Anglia. In his job, he sequences the genomes from cancers taken from patients when they undergo surgery. This involves generating very large amounts of data: around 70 DVDs worth of data for each patient! The use of computing technology and new mathematical approaches for analysing this information (called the Cancer Genome) is at the forefront of cancer research.
