Jinghui Zhang, Ph.D., an expert in computational biology at St. Jude, talks about the dramatically better computer tool she developed for finding the genetic missteps that fuel cancer. This  research is part of the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis are engaged in an unprecedented effort to identify the genetic changes that give rise to some of the world's deadliest childhood cancers. The team has joined forces to decode the genomes of more than 600 childhood cancer patients. The St. Jude Children's Research Hospital – Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project is the largest investment to date aimed at understanding the genetic origins of childhood cancers.
