There are different genetic alterations involved in the process that allows carcinoma to emerge from normal epithelium. The Institut d’Investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS) is composed of several research groups with a similar goal, which is to obtain high quality evidence to prevent or treat prevalent health issues.
Jordi Camps is a junior researcher in the institute. In this lecture he discusses genomic mutations, adenoma to carcinoma evolution, and the functional consequences of genomic instability on the intra-chromosome distribution of differentially expressed genes.
