Study Description

Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine malignancy. Most thyroid cancers are of the well-differentiated (non-aggressive) phenotype, and are almost always cured with standard treatments. In contrast, anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is rare, accounting for only 1% of thyroid cancers, however it is perhaps the most lethal human malignancy with an average survival of 3 to 6 months. ATC presents with dramatic and rapid onset of airway and esophageal blockage with frequent spread to the lungs. Interestingly, 21–79% of ATCs have coexisting areas or a previous history of well-differentiated cancers. Although this suggests a progression from well-differentiated cancers to ATC, to date there is little molecular conformation that such a progression exists versus de novo generation of ATC. As ATC is extremely rare and most cases are inoperable, there are a paucity of tissue samples for study at any one center. The Global Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Initiative (GATCI) aims to unite international institutions in order to pool samples (ATC with or without a paired well-differentiated ... (Show More)

Sequence data in fastq format was aligned to the GRCH38 reference genome. Aligned sequence was preprocessed with GATK for Indel Realignment and Base Quality Score Recalibration. Duplicates were marked with Picard Mark Duplicates. Aligned sequence is in bam format. Details of the alignment can be found int he bam header. In total, data generated from 174 tumour samples 102 matched blood normal controls was aligned. Tumour samples were classified as Anaplastic Thyroid, Poorly-differentiated ... (Show More)

EGAD00001004127
Sequence was aligned to the GRCH38 reference genome. Aligned sequence was analyzed with GATK Haplotype Caller, to generate germline variant calls across the SureSelect All Exon V5+UTR target region. Variant calls are in VCF format. In total there are samples from 173 donors. 101 donors have calls generated from both normal and tumour samples tumour samples, 94 of which have a matched normal. Details for the call can be found in the vcf headers.

EGAD00001004128
Sequence was aligned to the GRCH38 reference genome. Aligned sequence was analyzed with SomaticSniper. Somatic variant calls are in VCF format. In total there are 94 tumour samples, each with a matched normal.

EGAD00001004129
Sequence was aligned to the GRCH38 reference genome. Aligned sequence was analyzed with GATK/MuTect, to generate somatic variant calls across the SureSelect All Exon V5+UTR target region. Somatic variant calls are in VCF format. In total there are 166 tumour samples, 94 of which have a matched normal. Somatic variants for tumours without a matched normal, were called against a panel of normals. Details for the mutect call can be found in the vcf header.
