E-ERAD-128 - RNA-Seq of human samples within Chordoma Sequencing Project. EGA study
Released on 25 June 2014, last updated on 1 July 2014
This is a continuation of the Chordoma Sequencing Project. All cancers arise due to somatically acquired abnormalities in DNA sequence. Systematic sequencing of cancer genomes allows acquisition of complete catalogues of all classes of somatic mutation present in cancer. These mutation catalogues will allow identification of the somatically mutated cancer genes that are operative and characterise patterns of somatic mutation that may reflect previous exogenous and endogenous mutagenic exposures. In this application, we aim to perform whole genome sequencing on 10 chordoma matched genome pairs. RNA Sequencing/Methylation and SNP6 and an additional sequencing of three cancer cell lines will be added to this work.
