"Within minutes of receiving my review copy of The Oncogene FactsBook I discovered just how useful it could be... I could have found the information I needed in a matter of seconds. There is no doubt that every lab working on oncogenes or growth control should have a copy of this book for reference." --TRENDS IN BIOCHEMICAL SCIENCES
Praise for the First Edition:
"The introductory chapters on genes and the processes involved in cancer development are very good for undergraduate teaching." --MOLECULAR MEDICINE TODAY
