Each task in the sequence is necessary to deliver the best results. Sequencing refers to the use of machines for analyzing tumors. It also use transcriptomic and genomic sequencing, performed inside the laboratory, to get a better understanding of how tumors grow and die. This information is shared with other scientists and physicians around the world. Next would be analytics, and it is used by the scientists and physicians to understand the data coming from the previous studies and researches conducted through sequencing. It will allow them to create new treatment methods, which will be drafted into a report later on.
