Study Description

Cancer is a genetic disease caused by an accumulation of mutations, however many of these mutations have been identified in pathologically normal tissue. We aim to use laser-capture microscopy (LCM) to sample individual clones from lung tissue to identify whether cancer-associated mutations appear in this normal tissue, assess the mutational burden present, and identify the mutational processes causing these mutations. We will deeply sample from individuals with smoking-related lung diseases (COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer) and those without smoking history. This will allow us to determine how these processes are different between these groups of individuals, and gain insight into the earliest stages of tumor development.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Sequencing of LCM-derived microbiopsies from explanted lung from COPD patient. Goal to assess the mutational burden, spectrum, and clonal dynamics within the tissue. Deep sampling throughout multiple regions of the lung will determine whether there are differences in smoking-related mutaiton burden in different portions of the lung. Whole-genome sequencing will be conducted on samples identified as promising from the initial targeted data. Results from this poriton of the study will be compared ... (Show More)
