GENA 2009 Lesson Plan: The Role of Genetic Mutations in Cancer

Description

This lesson plan will provide an introduction to cancer as a group of genetic diseases that arise due to mutations in somatic cells. We will discuss the control of the cell cycle, the loss of that control by mutation, the environmental factors that contribute to mutation, and the hereditary mutations that increase the risk of developing cancer.
