one of many important features of the tumour microenvironment is that it is a place of active Darwinian selection where different tumour clones become adapted to the variety of ecological niches that make up the microenvironment. these evolutionary processes turn the microenvironment into a powerful source of tumour heterogeneity and contribute to the development of drug resistance in cancer. Here, we describe a computational tool to study the ecology of the microenvironment and report results about the ecology of the tumour microenvironment and its evolutionary dynamics.

Abstract

one of many important features of the tumour microenvironment is that it is a place of active Darwinian selection where different tumour clones become adapted to the variety of ecological niches that make up the microenvironment. these evolutionary processes turn the microenvironment into a powerful source of tumour heterogeneity and contribute to the development of drug resistance in cancer. Here, we describe a computational tool to study the ecology of the microenvironment and report results about the ecology of the tumour microenvironment and its evolutionary dynamics.
