Mutational Landscape of Lethal Castrate Resistant Prostate Cancer

Exome sequencing of matched pairs of tumor / normal genomic DNA was performed from high risk localized prostate cancer or lethal, metastatic, castrate resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Exome libraries were prepared using Illumina Paired_End Genome DNA Sample Prep Kit and captured using Agilent SureSelect Capture Library or Roche EZ Exome capture library. Sequencing was performed on Illumina GAII and HiSeq 2000 platforms in paired end mde, with 80 base pair reads from the final library fragments. Copy number alterations and somatic mutations were identified.
