This week in MathOnco 224
Cost of resistance, evolutionary game theory, stochastic models, and more
“This week in Mathematical Oncology” — Aug. 25, 2022
From the editor:
Today we feature mathematical models of cost of resistance, evolutionary game theory, stochastic models.
"This model will be a simplification and an idealization, and consequently a falsification. It is to be hoped that the features retained for discussion are those of greatest importance in the present state of knowledge."
- Alan Turing, on the purpose of the math model in his seminal paper about “The chemical basis of morphogenesis”

The newsletter now has a dedicated homepage where we post the cover artwork for each issue. We encourage submissions that coincide with the release of a recent paper from your group.
Caption: In our recent preprint, we explored patterns of tumor trees under spatial growth constraints. This artwork highlights the interlinked nature of cell division and genetic divergence observed in simulated tumors. Under boundary-driven growth, cells on the periphery of a tumor divide rapidly (yellow cells), whereas cell lineages trapped in the center are stunted (teal cells). We can see these dynamics play out simultaneously in the genetic tree. Yellow lineages also “grow” higher than teal ones, representing a higher accumulation of mutations. Animated frames were created from simulated tumor data with R and ggtree — the scripts can be found here.”
