Study Description

Background: Our recent study has made direct insight into the clonal dynamics of blood cell production in an unperturbed setting in a human. Using whole genome sequencing to track acquired somatic mutations, we were able to construct a phylogenetic tree of different stem and progenitor cells and used this tree to determine the dynamics of mature blood cell production in longitudinal samples. These data set the baseline for understanding population dynamics in abnormal haematopoiesis, and how malignant clones outcompete their normal counterparts to drive haematological malignancies. Aim: This study will measure population dynamics in abnormal human haematopoiesis in patients with clonal blood stem cell disorders. Methods: From patient bone marrow or peripheral blood, we have isolated colonies grown from single blood stem cells/progenitors. Colony DNA will be analysed by whole-genome sequencing to build (or populate) a phylogenetic tree to determine clonal relationships and track stem cell contribution to mature blood cell production. These data will also reveal disease-associated ... (Show More)

Clonal tracking of stem cells and their progeny by whole genome sequencing permits exploration of evolutionary genetics in human disease. In this study, we performed phylogenetic reconstruction of haematopoiesis using somatically acquired mutations in 323 single haematopoietic stem and progenitor cell-derived colonies from 10 individuals with an inherited disorder of ribosome assembly, Shwachman-Diamond syndrome. We observed numerous clonal expansions, with recurrent acquisition of mutually ... (Show More)
