ed more than 2▓3,000 mutations and the melanoma had more than 33,000. "These catalogues of mutations are telling us about how the cancer has developed -- so they will inform us on prevention -- and they include all the drivers, which tell us about the processes▓ that are disrupted in the cancer cell which we can try and influence ▓through our treatments," Stratton said. However, researchers said it has a▓ long way to go to find the reasons that cause normal cells mutate into cancerous o▓nes. "Somewhere among the mutations we have found lurk those that driv▓e the cells to become cancerous," said Andy Futreal, who worked on in the Nat

ure journal. "Tracking them down will be our major challenge for the next few years." They said this was a ▓first step of the future development of cancer medicine. With improvement of techn▓ology to map genomes, in future each cancer patient could have a complete genom▓e catalog to help doctors pick the right treatments for individual cases. "As mor▓e cancer genomes are revealed by this technique, we wi▓ll gain a greater understanding of how cancer is cau▓sed and develops, improving our ability to prevent, treat▓ and cure cancer," Elizabeth Rapley of the Institute of Cancer Research said in a statement.BEIJING, Dec. 13 (Xinhua) --

Chinese scientists have completed making a detailed genome map of giant panda, according to the State Forestry Administration. The mapping work was led by the Beijing Genomics Institute's Shenzh▓en branch (BGI Shenzhen), also a core participant in giant panda's genome sequencing project finished in October 2008. This year's research result showed that the giant panda ha▓s 21 pairs of chromosome, and genome size is 2.4 G, with repeated sequence content of 36 percent and more than 20,000 genes. The research found there is a high ge▓nomic similarity between giant panda and dog, and it also supported the view of most scie▓ntists that

"giant panda may be a subspecies of Ursidae". The research was joined as well by the Zoology Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the academy's zoology Institute in Kunming, Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda. The research has provided scientific support for giant panda's conservatio▓n, disease prevention and artificial propagation work, said researchers. With the conclusion of the Central Economic Work Conference the country's top economic planner is also holding its own meeting to map out strategies for 2010. Government offici▓al
