Cancer Biology & Genetics

Cancer biology represents the application of systems biology approaches to analysis of how the intracellular networks of normal cells are perturbed during carcinogenesis to develop effective predictive models that can assist scientists and clinicians in the validations of new therapies and drugs. Tumors are characterized by genomic and epigenetic instability that alters the functions of many different molecules and networks in a single cell as well as altering the interactions with the local environment. Cancer biology is based on the use of computational and mathematical methods to the complexity in tumor genesis as well as cancer heterogeneity. Cancer Biology is steadily improving our ability to organize information on cancer.
