The Path to Clinical Relevance: What a Study on RAD51C Reveals about Resolving VUS

Everyone has genetic variation….and lots of it. It’s part of what makes us each unique. Genetic variation is defined by differences in our own genome and a reference genome. (The fact that there is only one reference genome selected to compare to all of our collective, rich, human diversity is a topic for another post.) Another source of genetic …

New Research on Male Breast Cancer: Unexpected Results and Insights

Breast cancer in men may be rare in the average population, but is far more common in people with an underlying genetic predisposition. Finding a cancer gene mutation in a man with breast cancer can drastically impact medical management for him and his family members (who may otherwise not be screened for the disease). Current guidelines recommend …
