A team of researchers at The University of Texas at Austin developed a new way to tag tumor cells to figure out how they evolve and change over time to resist cancer treatments. 

"This is a technology that lets you replay the evolutionary history of the tumor," said Amy Brock, an associate professor in the Cockrell School's Department of Biomedical Engineering and co-lead author on a new paper published in Nature Cancer.
