A recent paper from the Wang Lab, “Transposable elements drive widespread expression of oncogenes in human cancers,” was recommended in F1000Prime as being of special significance in its field by F1000 Faculty Member Michael Zhang, Cecil H. and Ida Green Distinguished Chair of Systems Biology Science and Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Hyo Sik (Josh) Jang, a graduate student in the Wang lab, is first author on the paper. Ting Wang, Ph.D., The Sanford and Karen Loewentheil Distinguished Professor of Medicine at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, is a senior author on the article, which appears in a recent issue of Nature Genetics. Congratulations, all!
