The article highlights biomarker discovery. It mentions that scientists at Bristol-Myers are uncertain on what they would discover or how they would utilize it when they started looking for markers of response to their Sprycel cancer drug. Those that are based on gene-expression analysis are cited as probably the most popular and most advanced types of genomic biomarkers.
