Research management technologies enable researchers to organize and leverage critical data in order to decide whether to transport crude oil from a particular well by pipeline, truck, rail or boat.
By looking at the “seed and soil” hypothesis, it may be possible to draw blood and predict whether cancer is about to go metastatic and where mets will grow based on a variety of different biomarkers.
