For the first time, researchers have proved that the order in which cancer genes mutate affects the type of malignancy that results and its response to treatment. Although the findings are specific to myeloproliferative neoplasms, they suggest that studies of other types of tumors should take into account the timing of the underlying genetic mutations as a potentially critical factor in establishing an accurate diagnosis as well as in making choices about treatment.
At present, conducting similar experiments in people with solid tumors of the lung, breast or liver, for example, would be much more difficult because the cancer cells are harder to get at and tend to be more evolved — which means they contain more mutations to sort out. But advances in single-cell sequencing could mitigate that challenge.

Only true geniuses can imagine how it would be looking at a black hole directly. When scientists develop a new mathematical model to help us visualize concealed events, the results can be staggering. The mathematical model allowed the production of incredible images used in the Interstellar movie. The used model was published in the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity, and it helped understanding black holes gravitational pull. A team of physics, among them Prof. Kip Thorne and Prof. Oliver Jones, developed a new mathematical model they named “Double Negative Gravitational Renderer (DNGR)”. The result was the possibility to simulate how the black hole gravity affects light and the way we can observe the event.

What does it look like when black holes are made, how long does it take to make them, and how do they mess with the stream of time?
Black holes, because of their very intense gravity will cause light to bend around them, which will cause the appearance of background objects (like stars) to be distorted. It isn't known how long it takes for a supermassive black hole to form (this is a type of black hole found at the center of galaxies that weighs millions or billions of times the mass of the Sun). We do know it can take less than a billion years for one to reach a very large size: http://chandra.harvard.edu/press/04_releases/press_112204.html
A stellar-mass black hole, on the other hand, can likely form in seconds, after the collapse of a massive star. Finally, if you were to approach a black hole, the powerful gravity would cause time to slow down.
