Cancer Biology

Molecular Biology of Cancer by Lauren Pecorino has been the main text book I used for conceptual understanding. The author encourages us to close her books and attempt to illustrate diagrams to better understand the cellular pathways. All the below diagrams have been generated in the such a manner and hence might look similar to Dr. Pecorino’s work! I have tried to draw, annotate and make additions in the way I found most helpful to my personal revision. NOT all Important topics are covered below (e.g. p53/tumour suppressor genes.) Read the book 🙂

DNA (anatomy and physiology)

Cell Cyle

DNA damage

Base excision repair
