Nature As Symphony.... Cancer=cacophony

a: Embryogenesis ~
b: a symphony with many reoccurring themes

What: "Embryogenesis is like a symphony with many reoccurring themes and melodies, in which miRNAs function as metronomes to guide the orchestra of proteins to execute the score precisely according to the composer's ideas (that is evolution). In contrast, cancer represents a cacophony with misguided instruments directing and distorting the original score."
