    Scientists at the College of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee have identified a protein that could be key in the fight against cancer. Researchers at the College's Centre for Gene Regulation and Expression have demonstrated that cancer cells need a protein called Bod1 to grow and divide. When this protein is removed cancer cells lose control of cell division and die.
