By Andrei P. Kozlov

Evolution by means of Tumor Neofunctionalization explores the potential of the confident position of tumors in evolution of multicellular organisms. This particular standpoint is going past contemporary guides on how evolution may perhaps effect tumors, to think about the prospective function of tumors in evolution.

Widespread in nature tumors symbolize a much wider class than malignant tumors simply. the vast majority of tumors in people and different animals might by no means endure malignant transformation. Tumors might differentiate with the lack of malignancy, and malignant tumors may well spontaneously regress. mobile oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes play roles in common improvement. Many good points of tumors might be utilized in evolution, and there are examples of tumors that experience performed a job in evolution.

This e-book will stimulate considering in this subject by way of experts within the fields of evolutionary biology, oncology, molecular biology, molecular evolution, embryology, evo-devo, tumor immunology, pathology and medical oncology.

  • Covers the position that tumors may well play in evolution.
  • Provides multidisciplinary method that might attract a large circle of pros within the fields of evolutionary biology, oncology, molecular biology, and extra
