CANBERRA, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) -- Funding from a Hong Kong-based charitable organization will allow Australian scientists to study how new technology can improve outcomes for gastrointestinal (GI) cancer patients.

Sean Grimmond and Alex Boussioutas Will Butcher Youth Jersey , researchers from the Center for Cancer Research at the University of Melbourne, were granted 3 million U.S. dollars by the Li Ka Shing Foundation to research how genome sequencing can be used in diagnosing and treating upper-GI cancers.

Upper-GI cancers include cancers of the pancreas, stomach and esophagus. Gastric cancer is particularly prominent in Asia while pancreatic cancer is the third most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States.

Grimmond, director of the Center for Cancer Research, said that genome sequencing, the process by which the DNA sequence of an organism can be determined Nico Hischier Youth Jersey , could change the way cancer is treated.

He said that the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) is working to establish a database of whole genetic sequences from 25,000 cancer patients with 50 types of cancer.

"The next step is seeing how we can use genome readouts to give us better insights into a patient's outcome: can we make decisions on improving cancer treatment based on the readouts," Grimmond told Xinhua on Tuesday.

"We also want to understand the oncogenic switch in upper-GI cancers that causes a pre-malignant lesion to become a tumour that grows out of control.

"It could change everything from the diagnosis of a cancer to the treatment."

He said that the cost of undertaking sequencing was becoming more affordable every year to the point where having genes sequenced could be commonplace within five years.

"When the first Australian cancer patient was sequenced, it was in 2010 as part of a big international initiative, it cost us all up about (800,000 U.S. dollars) and 40 people worked on that project Marcus Johansson Womens Jersey ," Grimmond said.

"At that stage that team could do maybe four patients a year.

"We're now at a stage where the technology allows us to do 3,000 patients a year at several thousand dollars per patient with a much smaller team.

"Within five years we should be looking at a price point between an x-ray and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)."

The team from the cancer research center had been interested in studying upper-GI cancers for years, Grimmond said, when the Li Ka Shing Foundation made it known that it was interested in funding research on the subject.

"We think this is a fantastic opportunity for us," he said.

"(The Li Ka Shing Foundation) recognized the potential of this center as a great opportunity to drive this field."

WUHAN Jesper Bratt Womens Jersey , China, Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- Johanna Konta pulled off the biggest upset of the Wuhan Open on Wednesday night, battling back from the brink of defeat to stun the No.1 seed Simona Halep, securing the quarterfinal spot.

It's been a breakthrough few months for Konta after leaving the grass court season ranked outside the top 100. She won a string of titles on the ITF circuit and then, as a qualifier, made it all the way to the fourth round of the US Open. She came into Wuhan this week up at No. 66 in the world.

She scored her first two top 10 wins in that time Miles Wood Womens Jersey , over Ekaterina Makarova and Garbine Muguruza, and against the No. 2-ranked Halep she looked like a world-beater too, racing through the first set 6-3.

Halep struck back in a big way, winning seven of eight games from 4-3 ahead in the second set to take that second set 6-3, and build a 5-1 lead in the third, seemingly on her way to a runaway victory.

But she never sealed the deal Brian Gibbons Womens Jersey , and Konta, who battled through the qualifying rounds and two more victories in the main draw already, started ripping her huge groundstrokes into the corners again, reeling off the last six games in a row to finish off the improbable upset in style 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.

Konta is the first British woman to beat a top 2 player in almost 34 years. The last British woman to achieve the feat was Sue Barker Pavel Zacha Womens Jersey , who beat a No.2-ranked Tracy Austin at Brighton in October 1981.

"It was two hours and 17 minutes of very, very tough tennis for me," Konta said in her on-court interview after the match. "Simona really played some unbelievable tennis in parts - she may not be feeling her best, but I'm just really happy I was able to take a few of the chances I created.

"I'm feeling humbled and blessed I get to come back tomorrow and compete again."

Awaiting Konta in the quarterfinals will be Venus Williams, who kept her own unlikely run - she's unseeded here - going with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over the tournament's No.7 seed Carla Suarez Navarro.

Suarez Navarro had beaten Williams in three of five previous meetings Cory Schneider Womens Jersey , including Miami this year.

"We've had some great matches in the past, including a nice one earlier this year where she ca.
