Welcome to the old web site for the DNA Repair lectures in RPN530, Oncology for Scientists, at Roswell Park Cancer Institute

The RPN530 lectures on DNA repair are now being given by Professor David Kowalski. Current versions of those lectures are available at The following information was current at the end of 2006 and is provided for reference.

The lectures for RPN530 on October 26 and 31, 2006, are now available.


This web site contains the following pages. Each of these pages contains links to all the other pages at its bottom.

If you wish to print my lecture notes and slides, then I recommend that you not waste the resources of a color printer on my lecture notes, because the illustrations are in low resolution bit-mapped format. Print the lecture notes in black and white. The same images are available in vector format within the appropriate PDF files, and those vector-format images will print at the highest resolution of your printer. In other words, the images in the PDF files will look much better after printing than will the images accompanying the lecture notes.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

The list of links shown below will appear at the bottom of every page of this web site, which should allow you to easily navigate between pages.
