Additional Information: We applied new genomic and experimental methods to study aneuploidy, whole chromosome or chromosome arm copy number imbalance that is a near-universal characteristic of human cancers. Our experimental system utilized CRISPR-Cas9 technology for developing in vitro models of chromosome arm alterations. This work defines genomic and phenotypic correlates of cancer aneuploidy.
