Epigenetic analysis for early cancer detection

or a cancer detection test, that can result in higher upfront costs and the need for more bioinformatics.Another approach is to only sequence cfDNAs with regions known to differ between normal and cancerous cells. The CCGA researchers looked at two such targeted sequencing approaches: one that uses capture probes designed to specific cancer DNA mutations, and another that uses capture probes to target methylation changes.
