CRISPR Makes Cancer Cells Turncoats that Attack Their Tumor - Scientific American


Scientific American
That cancer cells migrate back to the original tumor after metastasizing to distant sites is still, 12 years after its discovery, one of the most unexpected and perplexing in cancer biology. Called self-seeding or (redundantly) rehoming, the surprising ...
