Study Description

Five hundred ng to 1 ug of genomic DNA was submitted to The Centre for Applied Genomics (TCAG) at The Hospital for Sick Children for genomic library preparation and whole genome sequencing. DNA samples were quantified using the Qubit High Sensitivity Assay and purity was assessed using the Nanodrop OD 260/280 ratio. Approximately 500-700 ng of DNA was used as input material for library preparation using the Illumina TruSeq PCR-free DNA Library Prep Kit following the manufacturer’s recommended protocol. In brief, DNA was fragmented to 400 bp on average using sonication on a Covaris LE220 instrument. Fragmented DNA was end-repaired, A-tailed and indexed TruSeq Illumina adapters with overhang-T were added to the DNA. Libraries were then validated on a Bioanalyzer DNA High Sensitivity chip to check for size and absence of primer dimers and quantified by qPCR using Kapa Library Quantification Illumina/ABI Prism Kit protocol (KAPA Biosystems). Validated libraries were pooled in equimolar quantities and paired-end sequenced on an Illumina HiSeq X platform following Illumina’s ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
We performed whole genome sequencing on 84 LFS family members from 47 families: 22 with wildtype TP53 and 62 with variant TP53. The variant TP53 cohort consists of 49 individuals who developed cancer and 13 individuals who remain cancer-free; 34 were from 13 families with 2-4 individuals sequenced within a given family and the remaining 28 had no family members sequenced. The wildtype cohort consists of 14 individuals who developed cancer and 8 individuals who are cancer-free, from 6 families.
