Week 2: DNA, the Cell Cycle and Cancer

How does DNA replication relate to cancer? Use evidence from any one of the links in the "Practical Application" section.

DNA replication relates to cancer because some of the DNA takes the wrong piece of DNA and it replicates to make more cancer cells

DNA replication, especially in areas and parts of DNA that are potentially difficult to replicate, can cause errors in DNA. This can lead to cancer, considering these errors can lead to uncontrollable cell division. This is supported by the quote "You might inherit some mutations, like flaws in BRCA genes that are infamous for causing aggressive breast and ovarian cancers in certain families." This quote also highlights the fact that these DNA replication errors can also be inherited.

Do you have any questions for me?

Can you have multiple cancers at once?

Does your genetic code increase or decrease your chances of getting caner? If so, how?
