Understanding Complexity of Cancer Genomes: Lessons from Errors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Deconstructing the events leading to cancer genome rearrangements is key to understanding tumorigenesis. In a recent issue of Science, Umbreit, Zhang et al. elegantly show that complex genome evolution is the result of a cascade of events initiated by a single error during cell division.
