Methods and compositions for predicting and treating uveal melanoma

Here, in multi-scale analyses using single-cell RNA sequencing of six different primary uveal melanomas, inventors uncover a previously unrecognized intratumor heterogeneity at the genetic and transcriptomic level. They identify distinct transcriptional cell states and diverse tumor-associated populations in a subset of primary uveal melanomas.
