In PLOS Genetics, researchers from the University of Texas and Wayne State University explore potential ties between transcription levels and mutations involving the non-canonical DNA residue uracil in the budding yeast model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Prior studies hinted that mutations related to uracil incorporation in the yeast genome might stem from repair-associated DNA synthesis that occur when damage arises during transcription, the team notes.
