Gametogenic genes in cancer

Tumors frequently reactivate genes that are otherwise only expressed in testis, ovary and placenta

RNAi-based functional genomics

We identify gene products that support viability and/or modulate chemotherapeutic sensitivity in tumor cells. Using this strategy, we discovered that tumor cells can depend on aberrantly activated gametogenic genes for survival.
