Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
EGAD00001000726 In total 30 Acute Myeloid Leukemias with an acquired inv(3)(q21q26) or t(3;3)(q21;q26) have been characterized by whole transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq). The 3q-aberration leads to overexpression of the proto-oncogene EVI1, but the mechanism of overexpression has thus far been elusive. The RNA-Seq was integral in determining the precise enhancer inducing the overexpression and led to other key discoveries. Illumina HiSeq 2500 30
EGAD00001000727 Targeted resequencing on the specific regions chr3:126036241-130672290 and chr3:157712147-175694147 in hg19 centered on the chromosomal regions 3q21 and 3q26 respectively. The focus lies on the detection of the exact breakpoints in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) patients having acquired a inv(3)(q21q26) or t(3;3)(q21;q26). This dataset contains all information to detect all structural variants contained within these regions, including the 3q-aberrations inducing the overexpression of the proto-oncogene EVI1.

EGAD00001006102 The Genomic DNA Clean & Concentrator kit (ZYMO Research) was used to remove EDTA from the DNA samples. Sample libraries were prepared using 100 ng of input according to the KAPA HyperPlus Kit (Roche) using Unique Dual Index adapters (Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc.). Exomes were captured using the SeqCap EZ MedExome (Roche Nimblegen) according to SeqCap EZ HyperCap Library v1.0 Guide (Roche) with the xGen Universal blockers – TS Mix (Integrated DNA Technologies, Inc.). The amplified captured sample libraries were paired-end sequenced (2x100 bp) on the Novaseq 6000 platform (Illumina) and aligned to the hg19 reference genome using the Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA). Illumina NovaSeq 6000 10
EGAD00001006106 RNA was isolated using phenol-chloroform extraction followed by DNase digestion or using the Qiagen Allprep DNA/RNA kit and protocol (Qiagen, #80204). cDNA synthesis was done using the SuperScript II Reverse Transcriptase kit (Invitrogen). Quantitative real-time PCR was performed by using primers as described previously13,21 on the 7500 Fast Real-time PCR System (Applied Biosystems). Relative levels of gene expression were calculated using the ΔΔCt method Illumina NovaSeq 6000 26
EGAD00001006123 3q-capture DNA sequencing was performed as we described previously 13. In summary, genomic DNA was fragmented using the Covaris shearing device (Covaris), and sample libraries were assembled following the TruSeq DNA Sample Preparation Guide (Illumina). After ligation of adapters and an amplification step, target sequences of chromosomal regions 3q21.1-q26.2 were captured using custom in-solution oligonucleotide baits (Nimblegen SeqCap EZ Choice XL). The design of target sequences was based on the human genome assembly hg19: chr3q21.1:126036241-130672290 - chr3q26.2:157712147-175694147. Amplified captured sample libraries were paired-end sequenced (2x100 bp) on the HiSeq 2500 platform (Illumina) and aligned against the hg19 reference genome using the Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA)25 Illumina NovaSeq 6000 33
