Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third leading cancer-related cause of death and the seventh most common form of cancer worldwide, with an estimate of more than 700,000 new cases each year. The most established risk factors of HCC are chronic HBV and HCV infection. HBV infection is responsible for over 50% of the worldwide attributable risk of HCC, especially in East Asia and Africa, while in Japan and several Western countries HCV infection is the most common risk factor for HCC. To gain insights into the molecular alterations of virus-associated HCC, we performed whole genome sequencing (WGS) of 321 HCC tumors from 159 patients. This work was performed as a part of the ICGC (International Cancer Genome Consortium) project.

RIKEN collection of WGS reads for 269 liver cancer tumors and matched normal blood or liver tissue from 258 donors. In total there are 1864 paired fastq sets sequenced on Illumina HiSeq 2000 or Genome Analyzer II instruments with paired reads of 75â€“101 bp. Quality control and duplication removal has not been performed.
