CANCER BIOLOGY: An introduction to DNA replication, damage & repair

Cancer Biology Tutorial

This resource provides and overview of the fundamental processes of DNA replication, DNA damage & repair, which is necessary to understand cellular oncogenesis.

The content of this resource includes fundamental but complex mechanisms of DNA replication, damage and repair in relation to oncogenesis. This is made up ~ 10 hr of lecture material. The design and layout of the resource was modelled on other effective sites such as DNAi (http://www.dnai.org/index.htm). The resource was designed in 2 formats, Flash© and html. Flash© allowed the animation to be interactive, concise, maintain interest and have sufficient depth to enable conceptualisation of complex pathways in time and space whereas the structural framework and detailed information was provided by the printer-friendly html pages.
The files below are the *.swf version. Individual *.fla files (which will enable reuse / re-purposing for non-commercial use) are available on request.
