Keeping the balance: How epigenetics monitors cancer genes

The human genome contains around 20,000 genes with two copies per gene, one inherited from each parent. Changes in the genome including gene breaks, rearrangements, and extra gene copies are frequent in many diseases, most commonly in cancer. DNA breaks occur often throughout the genome,... click to read more
