Somatic Mutations and Cancer

Journal Title:Acta Scientific Cancer Biology

Most of the mutations that accumulate in somatic cells throughout the life time of a person do not have any effects but some mutations can cause serious consequences like cancer (which after originating from a a single cell due to mutations in the genome starts to behave abnormally). There was a limited information of mutational processes and its consequences but recent advances in genome sequencing technologies due to unprecedented efforts has greatly revolutionized our understandings in this regard. In this review, I have briefly summarized about our current knowledge of the somatic mutations that that lead to cancer, its causes, possible ways which we are using for further studies and future premises.
