One of the hottest topics in cancer research is epigenome. One appropriate description of what epigenome is that human genome is like the code book of a secret language. How does the cell become is controlled by the epigenome which is like the program written in this secrete language. The cancer cells has identical genome as the regular cells but the epigenome is modified due to mutation. This is like a careless programmer that create "run-away" process that eventually take over all "resources". Garbage collection and resource management is what operating system (human immune system) used to prevent system crash (cancer). Now the difficult part is that we just sequenced the Human Genome after 13 years so we have a code book. But we are still struggling to understand the grammars and syntaxes of this complicated "language of life". It is an amazing area of study for the next century!
