- The article is an attempt to provide an overview of the relationships between the regulatory genetic mechanisms of three fundamental processes of biology, i.e., development, evolution, and cancer. The problems of the evolutionary inevitability of the onset of cancer, the evolutionarily developed systems for protecting the body against tumors, and the general systems of regulation used in evolution, development, and cancer are considered.
