The emergence of devil facial tumour disease, a transmissible cancer which is obliterating the Tasmanian devil population, has increased the importance of analysing marsupial genomes. I will discuss some of the advances we have made in uncovering the genome rearrangements that have occurred in the DFTD tumour and how these rearrangements appear to be in regions prone to rearrangement during marsupial evolution.
