Animation on CRISPR: Gene editing and beyond 

The CRISPR-Cas9 system has revolutionised gene editing, but cutting DNA isn't all it can do.

This Animation, from Nature Methods, explores where CRISPR might be headed next.

Immunotherapy: Viral reprogramming
p135 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2018.12
Two studies have shown that oncolytic virus treatment prior to surgery can prime the tumour immune microenvironment for subsequent immune checkpoint inhibition and lead to better outcomes in preclinical models of breast and brain cancers.

Breast cancer: Staying silent
p136 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2018.17
Mitogen- and stress-activated kinase 1 (MSK1) has been identified as an epigenetic modulator of luminal gene expression in breast cancer, maintaining latency of bone micrometastases.

Tumour microenvironment: Fibroblast subtype provides niche for cancer stem cells
p136 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2018.18
A subset of cancer-associated firboblasts, defined by the presence of the cell surface markers CD10 and GPR77, promotes tumour formation and chemoresistance by providing a niche for cancer stem cells.

Genomic instability: The sting of metastasis
p137 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2018.16
Data presented by Bakhoum, Ngo et al. suggest that chromosomal instability can promote metastasis through a cGAS-STING-dependent response to cytosolic DNA.

Impact of oncogenic pathways on evasion of antitumour immune responses
Stefani Spranger & Thomas F. Gajewski

p139 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2017.117
This Review describes tumour cell-intrinsic oncogenic pathways implicated in tumour immune evasion and highlights the potential for targeting these pathways to overcome resistance to immunotherapy in various cancer types.

Targeting B cell receptor signalling in cancer: preclinical and clinical advances
Jan A. Burger & Adrian Wiestner

p148 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2017.121
In this Review, Burger and Wiestner describe the latest insights into B cell receptor (BCR) signalling with respect to its contribution to B cell malignancies and discuss how inhibitors that target kinases downstream of the BCR are changing treatment outcomes for patients with B cell neoplasms.

Fanconi anaemia and cancer: an intricate relationship
Grzegorz Nalepa & D. Wade Clapp

p168 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2017.116
Fanconi anaemia (FA) is a genetic disorder associated with bone marrow failure, congenital abnormalities and an increased risk of developing cancer. In this Review, Nalepa and Clapp describe the roles of FA proteins in maintaining genome homeostasis and explain how dysregulation of the FA pathway through mutations in the FA genes might lead to carcinogenesis.

A matter of life and death: stem cell survival in tissue regeneration and tumour formation
Despina Soteriou & Yaron Fuchs

p187 | doi:10.1038/nrc.2017.122
Stem cells are long-lived and possess unique mechanisms related to quiescence, DNA damage response and apoptosis that protect them throughout their lifespan and during tissue repair. These mechanisms may also have a role in cancer stem cells and tumorigenesis.
