The standardization of Tumor Mutational Burden (TMB) by alignments to reference standards

Joined by Friends of Cancer Research (Friends)

In this episode, we are joined by Mark Stewart from Friends of Cancer Research (Friends). Victor and Mark discuss how Tumor Mutational Burden (TMB) is different from other complex biomarkers, such as Microsatellite Instability (MSI), and the importance of standardizing these biomarkers to reference standards.

They also talk about the Friends TMB harmonization project and how this project could lead to advancements in cancer research.
