What is sequencing?

Many of our goals for the Gastric Cancer Registry focus on learning more about the genomic background of stomach cancer. Sequencing genetic material allows us to learn more about the character and activity of cancer cells. To help you understand our research goals, we selected several fact sheets from the National Human Genome Research Institute to share:

1. A Brief Guide to Genomics

2. DNA Sequencing Fact Sheet

3. Chromosomes Fact Sheet

4. Chromosome Abnormalities Fact Sheet
