Genetic recombination in cancer

Author: G V Sherbet
Publisher: Amsterdam ; London : Academic, 2003.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Genetic recombination is a process of combining genes that leads to the generation of cell variants that possess different characteristics. This process is important to the evolution of a species and to embryonic growth and differentiation. However, this process can also lead to the development of abnormal, cancerous cells. This book reviews the role of genetic recombination in the generation of various cancers and  Read more...

Abstract:

Genetic recombination is a process of combining genes that leads to the generation of cell variants that possess different characteristics. This process is important to the evolution of a species and to embryonic growth and differentiation. However, this process can also lead to the development of abnormal, cancerous cells. This book reviews the role of genetic recombination in the generation of various cancers and how genetic alterations have been or could be employed to elicit clinically useful information.* Provides detailed discussion of the genetic mechanisms that result in the ge.
