Mucosal melanoma arises in non-skin locations such as sinuses, nasal passages and mouth. The research team sequenced the genomes of mucosal melanoma tumours from 46 humans, 65 dogs and 28 horses and discovered a handful of genes that were commonly mutated in all species.These genetic similarities point to the drivers of the disease -- key information that will lead to using biologically relevant drug targets....Read more.
