Single cell transcriptomic and genomic profiling of carcinogenesis in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis

Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) is characterized by hundreds to thousands of adenocarcinomas at different evolutional stages in the colon and rectum. Much effort has been made to illuminate the key genomic alterations that facilitate the transition from adenoma to carcinoma. However, the strong heterogeneity of the tumors may hamper these efforts. Here, by sequencing matched adjacent normal tissues, adenomas at different stages and carcinomas from the same patient, we precisely traced the process of colorectal carcinogenesis. Our study offers an accurate genomic landscape during the initiation and progression of carcinogenesis, especially for the transition between adenomas and carcinomas.
