    Dosage compensation can buffer copy-number variation in wild yeast

    James Hose et al.
    Dosage-compensated gene expression facilitates chromosomal aneuploidy, which presents a rapid route to phenotypic evolution in natural yeast isolates.

    Independent amylase gene copy number bursts correlate with dietary preferences in mammals

    Petar Pajic et al.
    Comprehensive analyses of amylase duplications and salivary activity across mammals underscore the importance of recurrent copy number variation as a flexible and rapid evolutionary mechanism.

    Mitochondrial DNA copy number variation across human cancers

    Ed Reznik et al.
    Many tumors are depleted of mitochondrial DNA; this depletion is associated with changes in gene expression and with the incidence of critical somatic mutations and alterations.

    Further support for aneuploidy tolerance in wild yeast and effects of dosage compensation on gene copy-number evolution

    Audrey P Gasch et al.
    Many natural isolates of budding yeast carry extra chromosome copies and show lower-than-expected expression at a subset of amplified genes, which show unique evolutionary signatures.

    Long read sequencing reveals poxvirus evolution through rapid homogenization of gene arrays

    Thomas A Sasani et al.
    An adaptive process of genetic homogenization in poxviruses facilitates the propagation of single nucleotide variation within gene copies and might favor the persistence of large gene copy arrays.

    Cancer Therapeutics: Partial loss of genes might open therapeutic window

    Bo Liu, Omar Abdel-Wahab

    Copy-number and gene dependency analysis reveals partial copy loss of wild-type SF3B1 as a novel cancer vulnerability

    Brenton R Paolella et al.
    Partial copy loss of spliceosome genes are common non-driver gene dependencies in cancer.
