I am very happy to announce that our manuscript describing the increased mutation rate in Transcription Factor Binding Sites (TFBS) in melanomas and lung tumors has been published in today's issue of Nature. In the manuscript we demonstrate that this accumulation is due to the impairment of Nucleotide Excision Repair (NER) activity by proteins bound to DNA.
