In cancer therapy, the medication may initially work well, killing off cancer cells. Then the process stops and the treatment loses its effect, because a resistant sub-type of the cancer cells has gained the upper hand. The ability to predict how viruses, bacteria and cancerous cells will evolve in the future would make solving such problems easier. This is precisely the objective of Ville Mustonen, professor of bioinformatics specialized in a new research approach to evolution.

The ability to predict pathogen evolution would facilitate the planning of treatment.
