Mutations in Poly-G Repeats Enable Cancer Phylogeny Construction, Illuminating Disease Progression | GenomeWeb

COLD SPRING HARBOR, NY (GenomeWeb) — By tracing mutations in hypermutable polyguanine repeats located in intergenic regions, researchers have been able to reconstruct the phylogenies of patients' cancers, giving insight into how metastases develop.
