  • Different technologies can be used for biomarker testing depending on the nature of the biomarker and the availability of biological samples
  • The increasing use of large panels for comprehensive genomic profiling raises issues on data interpretation that require a multidisciplinary approach
  • Monitoring the molecular evolution of the disease might allow the identification of resistance mechanisms and the development of more effective therapeutic strategies
  • The identification of germline variants requires the activation of genetic counselling programs for patients and their families
