Wilms tumor Childhood Kidney Cancer Arises From Altered Normal Tissue, Sequencing Study Finds These alterations, which can include hypermethylation of the H19 locus, can crop up during kidney development. Pediatric Oncologists Employing Variety of Sequencing Strategies for Treatment, Research Premium Though some experts prefer the comprehensive nature of whole-genome sequencing, others find whole-exome sequencing or targeted exome panels to be more useful. Single-Cell Transcriptome Atlas Elucidates Features Shared by Cancerous, Normal Kidneys By sequencing 72,501 individual kidney cells, researchers saw some shared transcriptional patterns in kidney cancers and developing or adult kidneys.
