Study Description

Tumor heterogeneity encompasses both the malignant cells and their microenvironment. While heterogeneity between individual patients is well-known to affect the efficacy of anti-cancer, most personalized treatment approaches do not account for intratumor heterogeneity. We addressed this issue by studying the heterogeneity of lymph node-derived B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL) by single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) and transcriptome-informed flow cytometry. We identified transcriptionally distinct malignant subclones and compared their drug response and genomic profiles. Malignant subclones of the same patient responded strikingly different to anti-cancer drugs ex vivo, which recapitulated subclone-specific drug sensitivity during in vivo treatment. Tumor infiltrating T cells represented the majority of non-malignant cells, whose gene expression signatures were similar across all donors, whereas the frequencies of T cell subsets varied significantly between the donors. Our data provide new insights into the heterogeneity of B-NHL and highlight the relevance of intratumor ... (Show More)

HiSeq X Ten 2
paired WGS data of one tumor of one patient with nodal B-cell lymphoma. Tumor cells were sorted according to CD48 expression in a high and low fraction. Library preparation with TruSeq Nano and sequencing on Hiseq XTen.
HiSeq X Ten 2
Tumors and control of nodal B-cell lymphoma of one patient. WES sequencing on Illumina HiSeq 4000 with Agilent SureSelect V5+UTRs. Bam files were aligned with bwa mem to hg19.
Illumina HiSeq 4000 5
paired EXOME sequencing on Illumina HiSeq 4000 using Agilent SureSelect V6 of one tumor sample of one patient with B-cell lymphoma. The bam-file was mapped to the hg19 genome.
