Maintaining genome integrity of adult stem cells is important to prevent cancer initiation and stem cell functional decline during aging. We have found that a surprising level of genome instability arises during aging in adult intestinal stem cells of Drosophila (Siudeja, Cell Stem Cell, 2015). This model provides an excellent system in which to address important fundamental questions of how stem cell genomes are maintained.
