When searching for mutations that may be responsible for tumourigenesis and interpreting their significance, molecular oncologists often make a number of implicit assumptions about how and why tumour genotypes develop. These assumptions are based on an underlying classical model of tumourigenesis. The classical model has a number of similarities to models of evolution: given the parallels between the growth of tumours and the evolution of whole organisms, this is to be expected. However, cons...Expand abstract
