Biomarkers have become increasingly important clinical and research tools in life sciences. They have the potential to validatenovel drug targets and pathways, confirm mechanism of action, support clinical proof of concept, monitor and predict response to therapy. Developed and validated properly,...

Sun-exposed human skin contains an extensive number of phenotypicallyintact cell compartments bearing missenseand nonsense mutations in the p53 tumor suppressor gene.   Deep sequencing of sun-exposed and shielded microdissectedskin from mid-life individuals revealed that persistent p53...
