  • Single-cell RNA-seq reveals diverse malignant, stromal, and immune cells
  • Malignant cells vary in cell cycle, hypoxia, and epithelial expression programs
  • A partial EMT program (p-EMT) at leading edge is regulated by the microenvironment
  • Computational modeling refines TCGA subtypes, linking p-EMT to metastasis
