Members of a large, international consortium tapped into whole-genome sequences from nearly 2,700 tumors to explore coding and non-coding variants contributing to cancer.

Researchers identified variants in the germline that appear to influence DNA methylation levels in prostate cancer tumors or in precancerous tissues.

Researchers used exome capture RNA sequencing to come up with a collection of circRNAs in dozens of cancer types, including proposed prostate cancer markers.
