Linked Read Sequencing of Gastric Cancer Metastases for Complex SV Resolution

Study ID Alternative Stable ID Type
phs001362 Case-Control

Study Description

In this study, linked read sequencing was performed on two ovarian metastases and matched normal tissue, from a patient with primary diffuse gastric cancer. Linked read sequencing is a DNA preparation technology whereby high molecular weight molecules of DNA are uniquely barcoded prior to fragmentation and sequencing, thus retaining information about genomic contiguity. This study performed an extended analysis of linked read sequencing data to resolve the complex structures of structural variants in the cancer genomes. Complex structural rearrangements were identified in the genomic region surrounding the known oncogene FGFR2, and the association between FGFR2 and gastric cancer metastasis was demonstrated in an organoid model.
