Torres Quevedo Programme 2008. MINECO
This preliminary study was carried out as a first step towards the design of genomic platforms for oncology. It proposed an alternative to traditional oncological diagnostic tools, such as FISH, as well as enabling retrospective clinical studies to be carried out using samples included in paraffin. The technical challenge was complex, as a DNA processing method had to be developed that suited the nature of the sample while at the same time being compatible with subsequent genetic analysis.
