CANCERING: Listening In On The Body’s Proteomic Conversation (Danny Hillis)

Listening In On The Body’s Proteomic Conversation

W. Daniel Hillis

We make a mistake when we think of cancer as a noun. It is not something you have, it is something you do. Your body is probably cancering all the time. What keeps it under control is a conversation that is happening between your cells, and the language of that conversation is proteins. Proteomics will allow us to listen in on that conversation, and that will lead to much better way to treat cancer.
