Abstract: Cancer is an evolutionary process, driven by the acquisition of genetic drivers and series of clonal expansions. Through mathematical modelling, we can track this evolutionary journey from normal healthy cells through primary tumours to treatment resistant metastases. I will describe the methods used, and present findings in individual tumour types including oesophageal and prostate cancer as well as pan-cancer.
