Reconstruction of complex rearrangement patterns causing the initiation of clear cell renal cell carcinoma.

The genomic hallmark of clear cell renal cell carcinoma is the loss of the short arm of chromosome three. This appears to be the earliest genomic event in the formation of these cancers. Often chromosome 3 is lost at the same time as part of chromosome 5 is duplicated via an unbalanced translocation, often with features consistent with focal chromothripsis. In this study, we sought to reconstruct the chromothriptic event that underlies the initiation of kidney cancer. We used long read sequencing (promethION, Oxford Nanopore Technologies) of patient tumour-derived DNA to elucidate how a single cell division error can generate cancer genome complexity.
