3-2-1 Cancer Project

From this cancer project, I learned about the associations between oncogenes, tumor suppressors, and their functions. I also learned that chromosome 17 is an active chromosome for mutations resulting in cancer development, and that oncogenes are dominant whereas tumor suppressors are recessive. I found it interesting that all cancer can be considered genetic, and that some of the most extreme types can be found as the result of a mutation in genome maintenance. I am still curious about how this information is being used to treat people, and how an oncogene or tumor suppressor can be corrected.
