This knowledge could help personalize cancer treatment by revealing which patients are likely to be treated successfully and those who may have a poorer prognosis.

Tracking sequence changes over time could also provide a kind of early warning system to identify the emergence of an aggressive form of the cancer by providing a real-time window into tumor evolution. The findings bolster the growing notion that noninvasive, blood-based biopsies of what's known as circulating tumor DNA are likely to transform cancer care....
