Abstract

Recurrent chromosomal translocations can drive oncogenesis, but how they form has remained elusive. Now, Chiarle et al. (2011) and Klein et al. (2011) characterize the genome-wide spectrum of translocations that form from a single double-stranded break, revealing that specific loci have an intrinsic predisposition for frequent chromosomal rearrangements.
