Book Description

This textbook Molecular and Cell Biology of Cancer: When Cells Break the Rules and Hijack Their Own Planet (PDF) takes you on a journey to the basic concepts of cancer biology. It combines evolutionary; developmental; and cell biology perspectives; to then wrap-up with an integrated clinical approach. The ebook starts with an introductory chapter; looking at cancer in a nut shell. The subsequent chapters are detailed and the idea of cancer as a mass of somatic cells undergoing a micro-evolutionary Darwinian process is explored. Further; the main Hanahan and Weinberg “Hallmarks of Cancer” are revisited. In most chapters; the fundamental experiments that led to key concepts; connecting basic biology and biomedicine are highlighted. In the book’s closing section all of these concepts are integrated in clinical studies; where molecular diagnosis; as well as the various classical and modern therapeutic strategies; are addressed. The book is written in an easy-to-read language; like a one-on-one conversation between the writer and the reader; without compromising the scientific accuracy. Therefore; this book is suited not only for master and advanced undergraduate students but also for patients or curious laypeople looking for a further understanding of this shattering disease
