Clinicians should soon have the opportunity to use precision oncogenomics to tailor the optimal cancer treatment to a specific patient. Precision oncogenomics will incorporate different sequencing platforms depending on the goal of the sequencing result. For example, the sequencing strategy used in immuno-oncology for the design of a tumor-specific vaccine may be different than that used by oncologists following a patient for clearance of mutations from circulating tumor DNA in the peripheral blood. I will provide a broad overview of several of the ways that precision oncogenomics is likely to influence the field of oncology over the next several years building off the experience at the Genomics Tumor Board at Washington University in St. Louis and a case of small-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the endometrium as examples.
