    Abstract

    Prevention and early detection remain essential to decreasing cancer mortality. Screening DNA in Pap smears has the potential to increase the rate of early detection of endometrial and ovarian cancers. In this issue of Science Translational Medicine, Kinde and colleagues use advanced sequencing technology to evaluate DNA to screen for gynecologic malignancies.
