Brief description:  Gastric cancer (also known as stomach cancer) is a disease in which the cells that form the inner lining of the stomach become abnormal and begin to divide uncontrollably, forming a mass of cells called a tumor. The human gene, ERBB2, among many other genes is linked to this form of cancer. The gene found in worms that was most related to ERBB2 I found to be let-23.
