Whole Exome Sequencing for Colorectal Cancer

This project was designed to use next generation sequencing technology to screen the protein coding regions of the genome for low frequency variants in a panel of high-risk colorectal adenocarcinoma cases.

Blood and cell-line DNA for colorectal cancer patients and a subset of quality control samples that had existing whole exome sequence data were analyzed using Illumina HiSeq sequencers. Samples from this project were from participants in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) and the Diet, Activity, and Lifestyle Study (DALS).
