Mutation Rates in Cancer Cells Strongly Linked to How Chromatin is Organized, Center for Genomic Regulation Reveals

Inside our cells, DNA is packed in a dense structure called chromatin so the cell can replicate, repair any DNA damage during cell division, and control which genes are expressed. Researchers from the Center for Genomic Regulation CRG have found that chromatin has a lot to do with where mutations occur in the genome in cancer cells.
