Neutral evolution debate

Some of our recent publications sparked an interesting debate on the interpretation of cancer genomic data. In particular, it focused attention on what signals are actually due to selection and which part of the cancer genomic data is a natural and expected result of an exponentially growing cancer cell population. More on this debate can be found here:
