The term neoplasia refers to a growth of cells. Cancer implies malignancy, but neoplasms can be either benign or malignant. Many paths and mechanisms can converge to result in the development of a neoplasm. This makes it difficult to target a canonical pathway, and diagnosis and treatment are challenging. This course will guide you through all the relevant aspects of neoplasia.

By Dominga G. on 31. August 2023 for Telomerase and MicroRNAs

In the explanation of miRNA, on the most important part of it, he sort of gets tangled explaining. I couldnt understand the only part i want interest of in the video. Please refilm this video, it is unclear.
