Damaged DNA amplified

20-Jan-2015

In the majority of cases, the onset of cancer is characterised by a minor change in a person's genetic material. A cell's DNA mutates in a particular area to the extent that the cell no longer divides in a controlled manner, but begins to grow uncontrollably. In many cases, this type of genetic ...
