DNA replication varies among humans

A process as fundamental as replication of a genome varies from person – shaped by common, inherited genetic variation that can also affect risk of cancer. The work is described in a new paper by Amnon Koren and colleagues in Cell.

Investigations into DNA Replication Timing

Amnon Koren has published three papers centered around his work on DNA replication timing. He described a new way to study DNA replication by using increasingly abundant whole genome sequence data, which he found contained signatures of DNA replication processes that were active in cells at the moment DNA was extracted from them.
