A new book on the evolution of cancer by Steven Frank, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at UC Irvine, has received a positive, full-page review in Science magazine. “Frank moves the field forward, narrowing the gap between a tragic disease of everyday life and the Darwinian world of the genome,” the review states. Frank’s book, Dynamics of Cancer: Incidence, Inheritance, and Evolution, is the first comprehensive analysis of how particular genetic and environmental causes influence the age of the onset of cancer.
