Study Description

Plasma cell-free DNA (cfDNA) is a noninvasive biomarker for cell death of all organs. Deciphering the tissue origin of cfDNA can reveal abnormal cell death because of diseases, which has great clinical potential in disease detection and monitoring. Despite the great promise, the sensitive and accurate quantification of tissue-derived cfDNA remains challenging to existing methods due to the limited characterization of tissue methylation and the reliance on unsupervised methods. To fully exploit the clinical potential of tissue-derived cfDNA, here we present one of the largest comprehensive and high-resolution methylation atlas based on 521 noncancer tissue samples spanning 29 major types of human tissues. We systematically identified fragment-level tissue-specific methylation patterns and extensively validated them in orthogonal datasets. Based on the rich tissue methylation atlas, we develop the first supervised tissue deconvolution approach, a deep-learning-powered model, cfSort, for sensitive and accurate tissue deconvolution in cfDNA. On the benchmarking data, cfSort showed ... (Show More)

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
The RRBS libraries of the genomic DNA from the 521 tissue samples were constructed following the standard RRBS protocol. 100-200 ng of intact genomic DNA in the volume of 21.5 µl was used as input material. Restriction digestion was done with 2.5 µl 10xCutSmart buffer and 1 µl MspI (NEB) for 18 h at 37 oC and 20 min at 65 oC. 0.5 µl 10xCutSmart buffer, 0.3 µl dACGTP mixture (100 mM dATP, 10 mM dCTP, 10 mM dGTP), 1 µl Klenow (exo-, 5U/µl, NEB) and 2.6 µl RT-PCR water, 0.6 µl 50 mM DTT ...

Illumina NovaSeq X 521
The cfMethyl-Seq libraries of the serial plasma cfDNA samples from the four NSCLC patients were constructed following the standard protocol. 10 ng of cfDNA in the volume of 25 µl was used as input material. 5’-end dephosphorylation was done with 3 µl 10xCutSmart buffer and 2 µl quick CIP from NEB (Ipswich, MA) at 37 oC for 30 min then heat-inactivated at 80 oC for 5 min. The 3’-end blocking was done with 0.5 µl 10xCutSmart buffer, 3 µl 2.5 mM CoCl2, 1 µl terminal ... (Show More)
