Continuing the Fight Against Cancer

Cracking the Da Vinci Code was no small feat for Tom Hanks, but researchers from Johns Hopkins University have topped that one.

Many of which were not previously known to play a role in these diseases.

Experts say finding new gene targets will allow new drugs to be developed.
