Message 1258211 - Posted: 9 Jul 2012, 22:58:46 UTC - in response to Message 1258192.  

I did my Doctorate in Cancer Chemistry, but i'm not sure where to start here.

Depends on the cancer, did he use a molecular targeted approach? Or maybe protein-protein interaction profiling.

None of the above.

No. He did a specific test that told him what to do. What was the test?

Specifically a genetic test of the cancer to see what the mutation was. This told him what drug to use.

I recently learned that there is a kind of SETI that can reasonably be done with amateur equipment. What is it?
