Cancer Gene Code, Decoded
The genetic code of breast and colon cancers which was esoteric, is now unplugged by scientists from America, showing 200 new mutated genes responsible for the growth and development of tumors. This finding is an impetus towards enabling timely detection and evolved treatments that are less harmful to the body.

Mutated genes in breast and colon cancers have portrayed a unique trait and decoding them have helped understand the manner by which each of the cancer types develop. Scientists will study engagingly in the future to better understand the strategy behind the mutations, which could lead to the birth of high-end drugs.
