Publication date: 10 December 2018Source: Cancer Cell, Volume 34, Issue 6Author(s): Joshua W. Russo, Steven P. BalkIn this issue of Cancer Cell, Gerhauser et al. analyze early-onset prostate cancers, showing roles for androgen receptor-driven rearrangements, an early APOBEC-driven mutational mechanism, and ESRP1 gene duplication. Through integration of whole-genome, transcriptome, and methylome data, they identify high-risk subgroups and develop an algorithm that may predict molecular evolution.
