BRCA1/2 Cancer Atlas
The mutations that cause cancer often arise spontaneously in somatic tissues but some are heritable. Among these mutations in BRCA1 or BRCA2 (BReast CAncer gene 1&2) stand out as having relatively high prevalence and causing a substantial increase in a variety of cancers including those of the breast, ovaries, pancreas and prostate. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are involved in the repair of damaged DNA but the precise events that initiate tumor formation are not fully understood.
