Study Description

Small intestinal adenocarcinoma (SIA) is a rare and aggressive form of cancer with limited treatment options. To further characterize the somatic mutation landscape of this tumor type, exome sequencing was conducted on a population-based set of SIA samples from all three parts of the small intestine. Archival tissue from 106 tumors with comprehensive clinical patient information entered exome sequencing from a patient series consisting of SIA cases diagnosed in Finland between the years 2003-2011. Paired-end exome sequencing was performed using Illumina HiSeq 4000, and OncodriveFML was used to identify significantly mutated genes from the exome data. Also mutational signature and pathway enrichment analyses were performed.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
106 FFPE tumor samples from small bowel were sequenced with Illumina HiSeq 4000. Exome capture was performed with NimbleGen SeqCap EZ Exome Library v3 Kit. Reads were aligned with BWA–MEM v.0.7.12 to GRCh37 reference genome. Variant calls were produced with GATK HaplotypeCaller. Variant calls were filtered against all data from gnomAD database using allele frequency threshold 0.0001 in order to remove germline variation.
