EGAD00001005279 High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) likely originates from the fallopian tube (FT) epithelium, but advanced stages are mostly found outside the FT. We used ex-vivo cultures of HGSOC and knock-out of tumor suppressors in FT organoids to study changes in epithelial cells and niche requirements for normal and transformed FT cells. We found that transformed cells require BMP signaling and are growth arrested in Wnt rich medium. A SureSelectXT Automation Custom Capture Library (Agilent) target enrichment panel was designed. The enrichment panel comprised all coding exons of 121 genes associated with ovarian cancer. Capture was performed according to the manufacturer’s instructions using an NGS Workstation Option B (Agilent) for automated library preparation starting with 3 μg DNA per sample. Sequencing was performed on a Illumina Hiseq 2500 system gnerating 2x100bp paired end reads and a target coverage of >200 per sample. Sequence reads were mapped to the haploid human reference genome (hg19) using BWA. Variants where called with FreeBayes v1.1. 20
