Somatic pseudogenes acquired during cancer development – Whole Exome sequencing

Dataset ID Technology Samples
EGAD00001000637 Illumina Genome Analyzer II,Illumina HiSeq 2000 4

Dataset Description

Insertion of processed pseudogenes is known to occur in the germline but has not previously been observed in somatic cells. Formation of pseudogenes could represent a new class of mutation in cancers and a new source of potential driver events.
