Here's my quote from the UEA one:
Co-author Daniel Brewer, from Norwich Medical School and The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) at Norwich Research Park, said: “This study has sequenced the whole genetic sequences of multiple samples from the prostate for the first time - both from tumours and apparently normal tissue."

“Surprisingly there were a large number of abnormal genetic changes found in the normal prostate tissue, suggesting that the prostate as a whole is a hot bed of genetic instability and is primed and ready for tumours to develop. This gives us important clues to how prostate cancer develops and has potential consequences to how it is treated.”
