Gene Expression in Familial Breast Cancer: A Genetic-Epidemiologic Study of Premenopausal Bilateral Breast Cancer
The objectives of our study are to identify and characterize genes involved in the etiology of breast cancer, to define sources of heterogeneity, and to identify factors that may affect expression of inherited susceptibility genes (i.e., gene-gene and gene-environment interactions).
