At AACR, Broad Researcher Describes Search for Cancer-related Germline Mutations Using TCGA Exomes | GenomeWeb

By Andrea Anderson

CHICAGO (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers at the Broad Institute are bringing together reams of exome sequence data generated for the Cancer Genome Atlas to get a closer look at germline mutations at play in cancer.

During a presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research annual meeting here yesterday, the Broad's Adam Kiezun said TCGA team members at that center are currently working with more than 100 terabases of exome sequence data.
