In the Methods section of this Article, ‘greater than’ should have been ‘less than’ in the sentence ‘Putative regions of clustered rearrangements were identified as having an average inter-rearrangement distance that was at least 10 times greater than the whole-genome average for the individual sample. ’. The Article has not been corrected.

DNA Polymerase Theta mediates an end joining pathway (TMEJ) that repairs chromosome breaks. It requires resection of broken ends to generate long, 39 single stranded DNA tails, annealing of complementary sequence segments (microhomologies) in these tails, followed by microhomology-primed synthesis sufficient to resolve broken ends. The means by which microhomologies are identified is thus a critical step in this pathway, but is not understood. Here we show microhomologies are identified by a sca...

Identifying cancer-relevant mutations in noncoding regions is extremely challenging due to the large numbers of such mutations, their low levels of recurrence, and the general difficulty in interpreting their impact. To uncover genes that are dysregulated due to somatic mutations in cis, we introduce the concept of differential allele-specific expression (ASE) and develop methods to identify genes within an individual9s cancer whose ASE differs from what is found in matched normal tissue. When a...

Cancer is the result of mutagenic processes that can be inferred from genome sequences by analysis of mutational signatures. Here we present SparseSignatures, a novel framework to extract mutational signatures from somatic point mutation data. Our approach incorporates DNA replication error as a background, enforces sparsity of non-background signatures, uses cross-validation to identify the number of signatures, and is scalable to very large datasets. We apply SparseSignatures to whole genome s...

Recent advances have revealed the vast molecular diversity of cancer. Detailed data has enabled powerful methods to sort tumors into groups with benefits for prognosis and treatment. We are still missing, however, a general theoretical framework to understand the diversity of tumor gene-expression and mutations. To address this, we present a framework based on multi-task evolution theory, using the fact that tumors evolve in the body, and that tumors are faced with multiple tasks that contribute...
