Cancer is driven by mutation. Illumina GA massively parallel sequencing technology will be applied to Agilent exome hybridisation capture libraries and total genomic paired-end libraries. Bespoke algorithms are being developed to identify the somatically acquired structural variants, point mutations, insertions and deletions in these samples. This project will give unprecedented insights into mutational processes, cellular repair pathways and gene networks associated with Myelodysplastic Syndrome development.

Agilent whole exome hybridisation capture was performed on genomic DNA derived from MDS and matched normal DNA from the same patients. Next Generation sequencing performed on the resulting exome libraries and mapped to build 37 of the human reference genome to facilitate the identification of novel cancer genes. Now we aim to discover the prevalence of our findings using bespoke pulldown methods and sequencing the products from a larger set of patient DNA.
