Debating Cancer:The Paradox in Cancer Research by Henry H Q Heng

By Henry H Q Heng

Cancer learn is at a crossroads. normally, melanoma has been regarded as a sickness of gene mutation, the place the stepwise accumulation of melanoma gene mutations is the main, and the id of universal gene mutations has been thought of to be crucial for analysis and remedy. regardless of large study efforts and collected wisdom on melanoma genes and pathways, the scientific merits of this conventional procedure were constrained. lately, melanoma genome sequencing has printed an in depth volume of genetic heterogeneity the place the long-expected universal mutation drivers were tough, if now not most unlikely, to spot. those realities eventually problem the conceptual framework of present melanoma biology.

This booklet introduces a brand new inspiration of genome concept of melanoma evolution, in an try and unify the sector. Many very important and consultant, yet usually complicated, questions and paradoxes are severely analyzed. via evaluating gene- and genome-based theories, the hidden flaws of many well known viewpoints are addressed. This dialogue is meant to start up a much-needed severe re-examination of present melanoma research.
