Am J Biomed Sci Res. 2020;7(6):548-550. doi: 10.34297/ajbsr.2020.07.001220. Epub 2020 Mar 6.


Next-Generation Sequencing is an evolving technology employed in the field of cancer biology. This mini review is intended as a brief overview of NGS for the clinical utility in colorectal cancer. The pathogenesis and treatment of colorectal cancer will continue to evolve as NGS is applied to more patient samples, correlating tumor biology and outcomes.

Keywords: Colorectal cancer; Next-Generation sequencing.
