Epidemiological and molecular data support the hypothesis that cancer results from a series of acquired somatic mutations. Discovering the initial mutations required for oncogenesis has long been a goal of cancer research. To date, the majority of causative mutations have been identified based on their ability to act in a dominant fashion and/or because they are activated by chromosomal translocations. Forward genetic screens are necessary for unbiased discovery of the remaining unknown… CONTINUE READING
