We live in an era in which scientific information grows by the day and is so specialized that no one person can possibly absorb and kept abreast of the literature. Substantial developments in science and medicine, powered by developing technologies such as genetic sequencing, proteomics, and nanobiology, have driven cancer research forward, and a review of where we are now is desperately needed. Cancer: The Outlaw Cell is a collection of twenty-five focused chapters by leading researchers at the forefront of cancer research. Authors present the current state of knowledge in chapters on the role of heredity, cancer and telomeres, tumor resistance, and microRNAs in the pathogenesis of cancer, and map out areas of future research and advancement.
