Thyroid cancer is one of the major cancers around the world. In this study the whole thyroid genome is systematically scanned in order to hit those molecular targets which are highly associated with thyroid cancer. To achieve this goal bioinformatics methodologies are combined. These include the high throughput microarray analysis combined with Serial analysis of gene expression. The results obtained revealed Glycoprotein M6A (GPM6A) as a novel associated gene marker. It belongs to the

In this study by assessing the whole biological mechanism the pathway is also inferred .This new drug target will help the biologists in finding the early diagnosis and better treatment for the thyroid cancer patients.
