Fixative optimisation study for BRITROC project
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The British Translational Research Ovarian Cancer Collaborative (BriTROC), spanning more than 10 centres across UK, is a prospective observational project focused on relapsed high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC). The first study, as a part of the project, is the Fixative optimisation study, which analyses the utility for next-generation sequencing of UMFIX samples compared to NBF-fixed and fresh frozen samples. Various DNA and sequencing quality analyses were performed to compare fixation methods in bulk tumour and biopsy samples.

Targeted amplicon sequencing of samples as part of the study "Methanol-based fixation is superior to buffered formalin for next-generation sequencing of DNA from clinical cancer samples. The amplicon panel consists of 48 amplicons in TP53, PTEN, EGFR, PIK3CA, KRAS and BRAF genes as described previously [Forshew, STM 2012]. All libraries were pooled and quantify using DNA 1000 kit on Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer and KAPA SYBR FAST ABI Prism qPCR Kit (KAPA Biosystems) on 7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR ... (Show More)
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 ... (Show More)
