Fragile Sites, Mutagens and Genomic Rearrangements in Cancer
The finding of specific genomic rearrangements in human cancer over the past several years is having important biologic implications. Although the genomic mechanisms involved in these rearrangements for the most part remain to be elucidated, critical clues are being uncovered in a number of different malignancies.
