Dataset Description

Whole genome DNA sequencing was used to decrypt the phylogeny of multiple samples from distinct areas of cancer and morphologically normal tissue taken from the prostates of 3 men. For each of three different prostates, multiple tumour samples (4, 5, and 3 depending on the case) and one normal tissue sample were whole genome sequenced with a matched blood sample using the Illumiuna HiSeq platform. Tumour samples were sequenced to a target depth of 50X and normals and blood to a target depth of 30X. As of September 2020, some of the studies using these data include: Cooper et al, Nature Genetics 2015 (PMID: 25730763) Wedge et al, Nature Genetics 2018 (PMID: 29662167) Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes, Nature 2020 (PMID: 32025007)
