Which appears to be more dangerous: the BRC1 or BRC2 mutation? Analyze a woman’s risk of dying of cancer if she carries a mutated BRC1 gene. How do heredity and inheritance relate to the data presented in these charts? What data would you need to see in order to draw conclusions about the effectiveness of preventive surgeries? What does the age at diagnosis tell you about the mutation? Explain how breast-cancer genes are still present in the population, despite cancer-related surgeries and deaths.

you need to do some research yourself first, i mean the first question you can basically google. the second, just compare the data and see which percentage has the higher mortality rate the third, just see what the percentage of deaths for the BRC1 mutation there were in the study etc
