This Week in Genome Research


In Genome Research this week, a team of Japanese investigators report their whole-exome sequencing of human pancreatic cancers and characterization of their genomic instability. The team sequenced the exomes of 15 pancreatic tumor cell lines and matched normal samples and identified 1,517 somatic mutations, 934 of which were validated by transcriptome sequencing. Overall, the team detected recurrent mutations in 56 genes, 41 of which have never been described before.
