Cancer cells have an exceptional ability to repair damage to their DNA caused
during uncontrolled cell division. Scientists have now unveiled a novel piece
of the puzzle of cancer cell DNA repair mechanisms that explain the
mechanistic changes in the genetic code of cancer cells. These findings result
from application of the cell microarray screening method developed by Juha
Rantala, Senior Scientist at VTT. Research with a material impact on cancer
drug development was published in Science magazine on 5 December 2013.Read more...
