Cancer Genes is a comprehensive list of the most critical genes known to contribute to cancer imitation and progression. The book delves into their location on each chromosome, providing valuable insights into the mechanisms of cancer gene dysregulation and genetic mutations which provide cancer cells with an advantage during each stage of tumorigenesis. The reference will familiarize readers with the location of cancer genes and equip them with the necessary information to identify relevant gene expression targets for research aimed at preventing the disease.

The book is divided into two volumes focusing on cancer-causing genes found in chromosome pairs 1-12 (volume 1), and chromosomes 13-23 (volume 2). A key features of the book is a detailed reference list for advanced readers. The compilation is therefore a quick and handy reference on cancer causing genes for researchers, medical professionals, and anyone interested in understanding the genetic basis of cancer.


Researchers (genetics, molecular biology and life sciences), medical professionals (oncologists), and anyone interested in understanding the genetic basis of cancer.


Cancer incidence is rising and has become a leading cause of death in many cities worldwide. It is well documented that cancer initiation and progression depend on the genes expressed in the cell's genome. It is imperative to understand the genetics of this dreaded disease to win the war against it. As we attempted to understand the latest update about all cancer-related genes in all the chromosomes, we noticed a clear lacuna because no books cover all the important genes that play a role in cancer presented chromosome-wise for easy understanding. We have decided to fill the gap and compiled most of the genes that are identified to play an important role in cancer. We delve into the world of cancer-causing genes and their location on each chromosome. This book will provide valuable mechanistic insights about the mutations and dysregulation of cancer genes that provide an advantage for cancer cell survival during each stage of tumorigenesis. This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the cancer-causing genes located on chromosomes 1-12 and serves as an invaluable resource for researchers, medical professionals, and anyone interested in the genetic basis of cancer.
