Summary

Next generation sequencing (NGS) has unravelled the genetic alterations that underlie the pathogenesis of cancer. It is now becoming integrated into routine clinical diagnostics of malignant tumours. NGS supports diagnosis, identifies therapeutic targets, reveals resistance mechanisms and facilitates disease monitoring. It takes a central function in the implementation of cancer therapies adapted to the molecular alterations of tumours.
