Study Description

This set of samples is composed of eight young people (7-16 years old) that have developed melanoma with first-degree relatives that have also developed cancer, which suggests a genetic component to their disease. Here we want to sequence these samples in order to find the causative mutations. As these samples do not carry any of the high-penetrance mutations known to date, finding the genes(s) responsible will offer new insights into the genetic mechanisms underlying predisposition to melanoma.
