Dataset Description

Shallow whole-genome sequencing of samples from the study "Methanol-based fixation is superior to buffered formalin for next-generation sequencing of DNA from clinical cancer samples". DNA from each sample (100ng) was sheared on Covaris S220 (Covaris): duty cycle - 10%, intensity -5.0, bursts per sec - 200, duration - 300 sec, mode - frequency sweeping, power - 23V, temperature -5:5 C to 6 C, water level - 13. Libraries were prepared with the TruSeq Nano DNA LT Sample Prep Kit (Illumina) using a modi?ed protocol - Sample Puri?cation Beads were replaced by Agencourt AMPure XP beads (Beckman Coultier) and size selection after the End Repair was done to remove only the short fragments. Quality and quantity for contructed libraries were assessed with DNA 7500 kit on Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer and with Kapa Quanti?cation kit (KAPA Biosystems) on 7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR System (Applied Biosystems) according to the supplier's recommendations, respectively. Libraries from 18 barcoded samples were pooled together in equimolar amounts and each pool was loaded on a single lane of a HiSeq Single End Flowcell (Illumina), followed by cluster generation on a cBot (Illumina) and sequencing on a HiSeq 2500 (Illumina) in a single-read 50bp mode. Reads were aligned using bwa-mem v0.7.12-r1039 to the 1000 genomes version of human genome build GRCh37. Picard ( was used to remove duplicate reads.
