Gastric and Esophageal tumour rearrangement screen

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
EGAS00001000037 Cancer Genomics

Study Description

Genomic libraries (500 bps) will be generated from total genomic DNA derived from gastric and esophageal tumours and subjected to total of two lanes of 50 bp, paired end sequencing on the llumina HiSeq. Paired reads will be mapped to build 37 of the human reference genome to facilitate the generation of genome wide copy number information, and the identification of novel rearranged cancer genes and gene fusions.

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.
