Study Description

We are interested in the genomic landscape of liver cirrhosis and its potential manifestations for liver physiology and risk for hepatocellular carcinoma. Previous work in CASM has shown that there is a strong element of clonality within cirrhotic nodules and that some recurring mutations have been identified. However how this relates to the overall liver is not known and therefore by taking geographically disparate biospies, we aim to correlate our findings and make conclusions as to the characteristics of the overall genomic landscape.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Chronic liver disease is associated with metabolic dysregulation, liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. We analysed somatic mutations from 1202 genomes across 32 liver samples, including normal controls, alcohol-related and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Five of 27 patients with liver disease carried hotspot driver mutations in FOXO1, the major transcription factor downstream of insulin signalling. FOXO1 mutations were independently acquired by up to 5 distinct clones within the same ... (Show More)
