    SPOP mutation leads to genomic instability in prostate cancer

    Gunther Boysen et al.
    SPOP mutations underlie a novel, genomically unstable subclass of prostate cancer by altering DNA repair.

    Suppressing proteasome mediated processing of topoisomerase II DNA-protein complexes preserves genome integrity

    Nicholas Sciascia et al.
    Analysis of genome integrity in primary murine B-cells reveals how depleting 26S proteasome activity enhanced cell survival following treatment with topoisomerase poisons.

    Programmed knockout mutation of liver fluke granulin attenuates virulence of infection-induced hepatobiliary morbidity

    Patpicha Arunsan et al.
    Gene knockout of liver fluke granulin by CRISPR/Cas9 attenuates the virulence of infection with a carcinogenic liver fluke.

    A Sec14-like phosphatidylinositol transfer protein paralog defines a novel class of heme-binding proteins

    Danish Khan et al.
    A new class of fungal hemoproteins is described that emphasizes the versatility of the Sec14-fold for translating binding of chemically distinct ligands to control of diverse sets of cellular activities.

    SIRT6 is a DNA double-strand break sensor

    Lior Onn et al.
    Hundreds of proteins are involved in the DNA damage response but only three sensors for DSB were known but now SIRT6 is identified as a fourth DSB sensor.

    Efficient single-copy HDR by 5’ modified long dsDNA donors

    Jose Arturo Gutierrez-Triana et al.
    The 5' modification of the donor template facilitates highly efficient Crispr targeted homologous recombination and at the same time favors single copy integration.

    Targeted, homology-driven gene insertion in stem cells by ZFN-loaded ‘all-in-one’ lentiviral vectors

    Yujia Cai et al.
    Building on previous work (Cai et al., 2014), HIV-derived lentiviral vectors are harnessed to insert user-defined genes into a safe locus in the genome of human stem cells.

    Structure of the germline genome of Tetrahymena thermophila and relationship to the massively rearranged somatic genome

    Eileen P Hamilton et al.
    The model organism Tetrahymena thermopile carries two nuclei with distinct genomes: an unrearranged germline genome with five chromosomes, and a somatic genome reduced in size by a third and with 181 chromosomes.

    Ongoing repair of migration-coupled DNA damage allows planarian adult stem cells to reach wound sites

    Sounak Sahu et al.
    Adult stem cells acquire increased DNA damage as they migrate to a wound site and require active DNA repair mechanisms for normal migration.
