These expectations led to various studies on the gene mutations of human cancers using the rapid genomic DNA sequencing technology. In 2004, a year after the discovery of the human genome sequence, B. Vogelstein [74] proposed the theory that cancer is in essence a genetic disease.

In the bioscience field in the 1960s, S. Brenner, F. Jacob, and M. Meselson discovered mRNA, which mediates the transfer of genetic information from DNA to protein (1961) [24]. In the early 1960s, M. Nirenberg and H. G. Khorana deciphered the genetic code that explained the pathway of expression of the genetic information—the DNA-mRNA-protein chain [25, 26]. The revelation of the true nature of genetic information and the process of expression of this information to protein elucidated the relationship among genetic information and intracellular functions, various life phenomena, and carcinogenesis.
