NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — A transcriptome-sequencing study using a combination of long- and short-read sequencing technologies made by Roche 454 and Illumina has identified new gene fusions involved in prostate cancer.

In the study, which appears in yesterday's online edition of Nature, a team of University of Michigan researchers searched for new gene fusions in prostate cancer by sequencing the transcriptomes of patient cell lines and tumor samples.
