The 2005 Cold Spring Harbor Symposium on Quantitative Biology focused on molecular strategies aimed at understanding and controlling the cancerous state. The resulting volume, with contributions from the world's leading laboratories, covers many aspects of cancer genetics, including DNA repair, telomeres, animal models, stem cells, and therapeutic approaches.
