This mini-review describes the rapid changes in genome technologies that are leading to comprehensive views of genetic alterations in cancer, and presents high-level thoughts on ways to accelerate translation into clinical medicine. Issues that are more relevant to children, adolescents, and young adult patients with cancer are highlighted. Cancer 2011;117(10 suppl):2262–7. © 2011 American Cancer Society.
