Broad Case No.
List of inventors -
Most somatic mutations are harmless, but some lead to a phenotypic consequence. The present invention provides methods and tools to elucidate exactly how mutations appear in the genome using detection of mutations in a cell lineage. The present invention also provides for determining the effect of environmental stimuli and drugs on somatic mutations. Finally, the present invention provides for personalized medicine by determining the effect of drugs on somatic mutations in cells obtained from a subject in need thereof.
