E-Streams"...A worthwhile addition to a collection serving biology or premed students involved in cancer research as well as clinical labs."
—Vol. 8, # 4, April 2005
The Advanced Texts series is designed for students taking advanced-level courses, including upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. Titles in this series will also be invaluable to researchers new to a field, and to established researchers as a basic reference text. Molecular Biology of Cancer, Second Edition, is now in a larger format and has been extensively revised. It covers heredity cancer, microarray technology and increased study of childhood cancers. It continues to provide a detailed overview of the processes, which lead to the development and proliferation of cancer cells, as well as the techniques available for their study. The book also describes the means by which tumor suppressor genes and oncogenes may be used in the diagnosis and in determining the prognosis of a wide variety of cancers, including breast, genitourinary, lung and gastrointestinal cancer.
