This Week in Nucleic Acids Research: Researchers describe a new method to find large-scale structural variants in cancer genomes, a glimpse at an approach for profiling miRNAs in tumor samples from TCGA, and more.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – New thyroid cancer mutations reported recently by members of The Cancer Genome Atlas consortium are already finding their way into at least one sequencing-based genotyping test used to distinguish between benign thyroid nodules and thyroid malignancies.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A Maryland-based team used real-time, quantitative PCR to screen for human papillomavirus in blood and saliva in order to detect HPV-positive head and neck cancers, track their recurrence, and predict survival patterns.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — An analysis of data from The Cancer Genome Atlas' comprehensive molecular profiling of squamous cell head and neck cancer has revealed a more complicated molecular landscape for the disease, and has identified a new genomic subset that indicates particularly poor survival.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – An integrated molecular analysis of the stomach cancer gastric adenocarcinoma has prompted members of the Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network to put forth four molecular sub-types for the disease.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — A study of RNA-seq data from several Cancer Genome Atlas cohorts has found that patterns of pseudogene expression correspond strongly with several molecularly or clinically defined cancer subtypes and, in some cases, might offer additional subtyping or prognostic prediction
