The study of double-strand chromosome break repair by homologous and nonhomologous recombination is a growth industry. In the past year, there have been important advances both in understanding the connection between recombination and DNA replication and in linking recombination with origins of human cancer. At the same time, a combination of biochemical, genetic, molecular biological, and cytological approaches have provided a clearer vision of the specific functions of a variety of recombination proteins.
