Study Description

The genomic landscape of breast cancer is complex, and inter- and intra-tumour heterogeneity are important challenges in treating the disease. In this study, we sequence 173 genes in 2433 primary breast tumours that have copy number aberration (CNA), gene expression, and long-term clinical follow-up data. We identify 40 mutation-driver (Mut-driver) genes, and determine associations between mutations, driver CNA profiles, clinical-pathological parameters, and survival. We assess the clonal states of Mut-driver mutations, and estimate levels of intratumour heterogeneity using mutant allele fractions. Associations between PIK3CA mutations and reduced survival are identified in three subgroups of ER-positive cancer (defined by amplification of 17q23, 11q13-14 or 8q24). High levels of intratumour heterogeneity are in general associated with worse outcome, but highly aggressive tumours with 11q13-14 amplification have low levels of intratumour heterogeneity. These results emphasise the importance of genome-based stratification of breast cancer, and have important implications for ... (Show More)

Targeted sequencing of 173 genes in 2433 primary breast tumours. Data includes 2433 tumour samples, 523 adjacent normal (breast) samples and 127 blood samples. Libraries were prepared with Illumina's Nextera custom enrichment kit targetting all the exons of the most frequently mutated breast cancer genes. Libraries were multiplexed (48 libraries per lane) and sequenced on Illumina HiSeq 2000 (100bp paired-end reads). Somatic mutations were calling with a custom pipeline. We identified 40 ...
