Abstract This perspective on Candiloro and Dobrovic (beginning on p. 862 in this issue of the journal) highlights the interplay between epigenetic aberrations and underlying DNA sequence changes and illustrates how these alterations may predispose individuals to cancer. Candiloro and Dobrovic clearly show that particular genotypes of the MGMT gene are associated with its methylation in healthy individuals. Aberrant MGMT methylation may identify individuals who could be targeted for cancer screening and chemoprevention strategies.
