The effects of chromatin organization on variation in mutation rates in the genome

Kateryna D. Makova, Ross C. Hardison
2015 Nature reviews genetics  
Deciphering the molecular determinants of this variation will be aided by resolving distinct types of mutation, since they differ in regional preferences and in associations with genomic features.  ...  In both germ-line mutations and somatic mutations, base substitutions are more abundant in regions of closed chromatin, perhaps reflecting error accumulation late in replication.  ...  Of particular interest are topics on regional variation in mutation rates, mitochondrial mutations, microsatellites and genome stability, and mutations at sex chromosomes. Ross Hardison is the T.  ...
