Study Description

This study utilized a genetically-enriched cohort of patients with familial ESCC from the high-risk Henan region, located near the Tai-Hang Mountain region in Northern China, to identify high penetrance ESCC predisposition genes using a comprehensive unbiased whole-exome sequencing (WES) strategy. Subsequent validate the prevalence of rare damage variants by targeted gene sequencing in a large sample size.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
In total, 186 FH+ ESCC cases were sequenced using whole-exome sequencing, then 1935 ESCC cases and 1186 geographically-matched healthy controls were sequenced using 7 Mb custom designed Roche SeqCap kit which targeted about 600 genes. The libraries were constructed and then sequenced in Illumina platform.
Illumina HiSeq 2500 3289
