Researchers used exome and targeted sequencing to find alterations affecting KRAS and other cancer driver genes in a subset of deep infiltrating endometriosis samples.

Using point mutation and structural variant patterns in 133 ovarian cancer cases, researchers identified seven clusters to classify the disease and predict patient outcomes.

A multi-region analysis of medulloblastoma and other tumor types highlighted the dramatic somatic alteration differences that can crop up within a single tumor.

Researchers demonstrated that Strand-seq directional single-cell sequencing can be used to assemble consensus chromosome haplotypes for an individual.

The researchers used whole-genome and single-cell sequencing to study cell migration patterns and clonal diversity, using new single-cell genotyping software.

Two separate studies concluded that in most SEO cancer cases what they are seeing are two separate early-stage tumors, instead of late-stage cancer.

The funding will support the British Columbia Cancer Agency's effort to use genome sequencing to develop personalized treatment strategies for cancer patients.

Among 100 adults and six children recruited between June 2012 and August 2014, most were successfully sequenced and a majority of those had actionable results.

The partners will use Watson's cognitive capabilities to reduce to minutes from weeks the translation of DNA information to create a genetic profile of a patient.

Researchers leading the POG trial are hoping this year to sequence the whole genomes of 300 cancer patients in an effort to find the best treatment options for them.
