Members of a large, international consortium tapped into whole-genome sequences from nearly 2,700 tumors to explore coding and non-coding variants contributing to cancer.

Researchers found that some cells from former smokers had mutational patterns more similar to those from never-smokers, suggesting that quitting at any age can be beneficial.

The results suggest patients receiving stem cell transplants for blood cancers may be at increased risk of somatic mutation-related complications even with young bone marrow donors.
