The development of cancer is a multistep process in which normal cells sustain a series of genetic alterations that together program the malignant phenotype. Much of our knowledge of cancer biology derives from the detailed study of specimens and cell lines derived from patient tumors. While these approaches continue to yield critical information regarding the identify, number, and types of alterations found in human tumors, further progress in understanding the molecular basis of malignant transformation depends upon the generation of increasingly accurate experimental models of cancer as well as more sophisticated tools to functionally annotate the cancer genome.
