Breaking Report: Divisions Gone Wrong

What's on my desk today? A paper on a Drosophila kinase RNAi screen and a very recent report that extends the results to a specific topic in human disease.

Bettencourt-Dias et al. (2004) Genome-wide survey of protein kinases required for cell cycle progression. Nature 432:980-987. At PubMed.

Wang et al. (2009) Association of genetic variation in mitotic kinases with breast cancer risk. Breast Cancer Res. Treat. DOI 10.1007/s10549-009-0404-3. At PubMed.
