Study Description

Around 10% of patients who present in melanoma clinics have a first degree relative with a previous diagnosis of melanoma. While around 3% have three or more relatives who have been diagnosed with the disease. In this project we will whole genome sequence patients from large Dutch familial melanoma pedigrees to identify mutations in genes that drive melanomagenesis. The identification of these genes will facilitate the management of familial melanoma patients and their families.
