This Week in Science

In Science this week, two groups publish studies offering clues about the genetics behind cancer susceptibility to immune checkpoint inhibition. In the first, researchers used CRISPR screening on a mouse melanoma cell line resistant to immune checkpoint inhibitors to identify several genes whose inactivation enhanced tumor sensitivity to such drugs, including three — Pbrm1, Arid2, and Brd7 — that produce proteins part of a chromatin remodeling complex.
