Geneticists can reconstruct the evolutionary history of an organism by analyzing changes in its genetic code that have accumulated over time. Now a team of researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science and Sheba Medical Center in Israel has used this approach to trace the path of cancer development in mice. The approach may one day be performed on human cancer cells after they have been removed from the body to reconstruct the genetic changes that led up to that point.
