SUBJECT:  Cancer, Microbiome, and Deep Learning
SPEAKER:  Uttam K. Sinha, MS, MD, FACS

GENETIC DIVERSITY

In order to know about cancer and its progression one has to understand general biology and the process of evolution because cancer is present in the biosphere.  About 2 billion years ago there were uni-cellular organisms, which evolved into multicellular organisms. All multicellular organisms have the potential of cancer in them and this is attributed to the presence of carbon chains and the availability of oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen.
