Oncogenesis and genome duplication maps (commentary).
Birnbaum D, Pebusque M, Dib A, Delapeyriere O, Coulier F
Examples of activation of putative cancer genes belonging to multigene families are given. Their structure and chromosomal location helps in identifying genome duplications. Reciprocally, genome duplication maps may help in predicting the location and behaviour of putative cancer genes.Read the article
