    Genomics of 1 million parent lifespans implicates novel pathways and common diseases and distinguishes survival chances

    Paul RHJ Timmers et al.
    Genomic associations with lifespan principally reflect heart disease/smoking/dementia but not other cancers, and distinguish lifespan differences of five years between top/bottom deciles of a score derived from DNA alone.

    Novel insights into breast cancer copy number genetic heterogeneity revealed by single-cell genome sequencing

    Timour Baslan et al.
    Copy number alteration heterogeneity exists in many shapes and forms in breast cancer genomes and single-cell genomics is a powerful tool to further our understanding of its nature and significance.

    Mismatch repair deficiency endows tumors with a unique mutation signature and sensitivity to DNA double-strand breaks

    Hui Zhao et al.
    A comprehensive catalogue of somatic mutations accumulating in MMR-deficient tumors highlights their relevance in the context of human genetic evolution, for the diagnosis of microsatellite instability and the provision of targeted treatment options.

    Loss of centromere function drives karyotype evolution in closely related Malassezia species

    Sundar Ram Sankaranarayanan et al.
    The centromeres in Malassezia species, by breakage or inactivation, facilitate genome rearrangements that can result in varying karyotypes and contribute to the evolution of these species.

    Reduced signal for polygenic adaptation of height in UK Biobank

    Jeremy J Berg et al.
    Many prior signals of polygenic adaptation on human height do not replicate in the UK Biobank.

    Regulation of the glucocorticoid receptor via a BET-dependent enhancer drives antiandrogen resistance in prostate cancer

    Neel Shah et al.
    Epigenetic regulation of the glucocorticoid receptor in castration-resistant prostate cancer can be targeted via the use of BET bromodomain inhibitors.

    A role for PVRL4-driven cell–cell interactions in tumorigenesis

    Natalya N Pavlova et al.
    A protein called PVRL4 has a central role in a number of cancers that originate in epithelial tissue, and anti-PVRL4 antibodies could be used to treat some of these cancers.
