This paper reviews the consequences of multi-quark correlations in nuclei which arise through the particular cluster decomposition of the nuclear ground state specified by the quark cluster model (QCM). The critical radius of a three quark cluster, R , controls the formation probability of larger clusters. The value of R,;0.50 fm is fixed by fits to deep inelastic lepton nucleus scattering da a. The QCM prediction fOC the ratio of nuclear structure functions in the x > 1 domain is discussed as a critical test of the model. We also present an extended discussion of the application of the QCM to the nuclear Drell-Yan process.
