Overview: A New Era of Cancer Genomics in Lymphoid Malignancies.

Novel technologies including next-generation sequencing have not only delineated the molecular pathogenesis of lymphoid malignancies but also identified novel biomarkers predicting the outcome of specific therapies. In addition, many actionable genetic alterations, which can be targeted by either specific therapeutic compounds or monoclonal antibodies, have been discovered. An appropriate selection of the patients enrolled in clinical trials using novel drugs targeting specific mutations will usher in a new era of personalized medicine in clinical practice of lymphoid malignancies.
