This is a proposal for the existence of a "minimal cancer cell" that would result from the evolutionary dynamics of unstable tumors. The idea is that genomic instability in cancer has an upper limit that might involve a "minimal" genome complement that we should be able to characterize as a network. What is the nature of this network? That's what we try to conjecture.

This work has been performed by researchers of R. Solé Lab.
