Q. Explore the role of the epigenome and/or other gene expression regulatory mechanisms in the development of cancer. Discuss in detail one possible epigenetic/post-transcriptional/post-translational target for cancer treatment, and identify the successes and drawbacks of this treatment.
Q. Currently, there are two main hypotheses to describe why cancer cells exhibit the Warburg effect (also known as aerobic glycolysis). Choose one of these viewpoints and provide supportive evidence for your argument (these viewpoints outlined in the introduction of the paper below).
Q. Table 2.9 (Weinberg) documents exs of epidemiological correlations between cancer incidence and environmental/lifestyle factors that have no apparent causal relationship. Choose one of these relationships to explore in more detail and provide evidence supporting or refuting a causal relationship between the lifestyle/dietary factor/medical condition and the risk of a particular type of cancer.
