Cancer occurs when a single cell in the body stops performing its normal function and grows out of control. Damage to DNA can lead to permanent changes, called mutations, which can result in cancerous growth. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientist John Hinz explores how cells repair DNA, the consequences of unrepaired DNA damage, and the fates of individuals born without DNA repair proteins. Recorded on 4/1/2006. (#11545)
