DNA-damage-inducing therapy can lead to cure of the cancer, but if relapse occurs, the tumor will likely show even more genomic instability. within the tumor, and so-called passenger mutations that are accumulated as a result of the constant DNA damage but have little impact on the physiology of the tumor [63]. The elevated occurrence of genomic instability in cancers is a result of shortening of telomeres, which provides a site for chromosomal fusion events, as well as of oncogenic stress, resulting in subsequent replication stress.

Can be of great use [124]. In order to test the robustness of RNAi screening data, signal-to-background ratio or Z'-factors should be determined. Typically the signal-to-noise ratio of RNAi screens is lower than that of compound screens [82]. Many siRNAs have been shown to have off-target effects, targeting another mRNA, next to the mRNA of interest. This effect seems to be mostly dependent on the 2-7/2-8 seed region of the antisense strand of the siRNA [87]. In a study published in 2012, Adamson and coworkers indicated the possible severity of this phenomenon.
