Somatic mutation and clonal evolution in the human testes

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
EGAS00001003021 Cancer Genomics

Study Description

In this study we aim to characterise the landscape of Pathogenic variants and clonal dynamics in normal and cancerous testes and their role in cancer predisposition. The study combines targeted sequencing and whole-genome sequencing of microbiopsies from testes. The range of patients studied will include healthy individuals, and patients with testicular cancer.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
During the course of a lifetime normal human cells accumulate mutations. Here, using multiple samples from the same individuals we compared the mutational landscape in 29 anatomical structures from soma and the germline. Two ubiquitous mutational signatures, SBS1 and SBS5/40, accounted for the majority of acquired mutations in most cell types but their absolute and relative contributions varied substantially. SBS18, potentially reflecting oxidative damage, and several additional signatures ... (Show More)

Germ cell tumours (GCTs) are a collection of benign and malignant neoplasms derived from primordial germ cells (PGCs). They are uniquely able to generate embryonic and extraembryonic tissues, which in malignant GCTs carries prognostic and therapeutic significance. The developmental pathways underpinning GCT initiation and histogenesis are incompletely understood. Here, we studied the phylogenetic and transcriptional diversity of 15 malignant gonadal GCTs and four normal testis biopsies by ... (Show More)
