Mutation signatures in melanocytic nevi reveal characteristics of defective DNA repair

Nevi are common benign melanocytic neoplasms that can be found on any skin location and share many of the genomic hallmarks of melanoma. In our recent report involving whole-exome sequencing of acquired nevi (Stark et al., 2018), ultra-violet radiation (UVR) related somatic mutation signatures (“signature 7”) (Alexandrov et al., 2013) were frequently observed in all lesions that were located on sun-exposed sites. In the study presented herein, we sought to investigate whether an independent Spanish cohort (Valencia, Spain) of minimally sun exposed nevi had genomic features consistent with our previous findings.
