Yonsei University ) is a private research university located in Seoul, South Korea. Yonsei was established in 1885 and is one of the oldest universities in South Korea.The student body consists of 38,725 students: 26,731 undergraduate students, 11,994 graduate students, 4,518 faculty members, 6,788 staff, and 257,931 alumni. Today, Yonsei operates its main campus in Seoul that have extensive programs in the Korean and English language.The university was formally established in January, 1957 through the union of Yonhi College and Severance Union Medical College . This was a result of a lasting bilateral cooperation between the two colleges that began in the 1920s. The institutions were new to Korea at the time of their inception — Yonhi College was one of the first modern colleges, founded originally as Chosun Christian College in March, 1915, and Severance has its roots in the first modern medical center in Korea, Gwanghyewon , founded in April, 1885. As a tribute, the name 'Yonsei' was derived from the first syllables of the names of its two parent institutions, 'Yon; 연; 延' from Yonhi College and 'Sei; 세; 世' from Severance Union Medical College.

Methods of diagnosing cancer and screening for an anti-cancer drug using Ras are provided. Ras has a very significant role as a prevalent proto-oncogene which has abnormalities in most forms of cancer, and thus the methods of diagnosing cancer and screening for an anti-cancer drug using Ras may be applied to various forms of cancer. The generation of various forms of cancer in the early stages may be determined by examining whether or not phosphorylation of Ras occurs at Thr-144 and Thr-148 sites. By such a mechanism, an anti-cancer drug having excellent anti-cancer effectiveness may be screened, or the effectiveness of the anti-cancer drug may be tested.
