With data for almost 31,500 women, researchers uncovered regions of BRCA1 and BRCA2 where mutations most closely correlated with breast or ovarian cancer diagnoses.

The technique, protein interaction profile sequencing, can capture both the pattern of protein-RNA binding sites and the larger structure of nuclear or other transcripts.
