Over the past decade, rapid advances in genomics, proteomics and functional genomics technologies that enable in-depth interrogation of cancer genomes and proteomes and high-throughput analysis of gene function have enabled characterization of the kinome at large in human cancers, providing crucial insights into how members of the protein kinase superfamily are dysregulated in malignancy, the context-dependent functional role of specific kinases in cancer and how kinome remodelling modulates sensitivity to anticancer drugs. The power of these complementary approaches, and the insights gained from them, form the basis of this Analysis article.
