    Molecular Biology by Robert F. Weaver



Amplification Explanation

Amplification in genetics is the selective replication of a gene, resulting in the production of more than a single copy in a haploid genome. Its occurrence is more common in tumor cells that are already genetically unstable. It happens through alterations in the cell cycle checkpoint pathways. Although gene amplification can also occur during somatic cells differentiation.
