Targeted Sequencing Method IDs Viral Integration in FFPE Tumors | GenomeWeb

By Monica Heger

This article has been modified to indicate that the sequencing method described was co-developed at the University of Utah and Washington University.

Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples have proven to be a vexing source of clinical specimens for genetic analysis. While abundant samples exist, particularly from tumors, DNA from FFPE tissue tends to be degraded and can be tricky to sequence, compared to DNA from fresh tissue.
