exome sequencing

The Angiosarcoma Project uses patient-partnered research to gather information and glean new genomic insights into angiosarcomas.

Members of a large, international consortium tapped into whole-genome sequences from nearly 2,700 tumors to explore coding and non-coding variants contributing to cancer.

Using corrected TMB and other variables allowed Johns Hopkins researchers to more accurately predict response to immune checkpoint blockade in lung cancer.

Recent studies question the clinical utility of tumor mutational burden as a biomarker for immuno-oncology response, and the FDA clearance includes no therapeutic indications.

The approval of its Omics Core assay for tumor-normal mutational profiling opens the door for payor reimbursement, which is key to reaching profitability, NantHealth said.

Though some experts prefer the comprehensive nature of whole-genome sequencing, others find whole-exome sequencing or targeted exome panels to be more useful.

Cancer Moonshot-funded teams are profiling pre-cancers in an effort to establish targeted treatment, detection, and prevention methods that can be applied before cancers form.

Using exome sequencing, the team developed a transgenic model with altered orthologs of nine genes and found a combination of drugs that could act as a cancer treatment option.

With exome sequences from more than 600 metastatic breast tumors, researchers identified genomic alterations related to tumor progression, treatment response, and patient outcomes.

The test relies on a signature that Almac developed for stratifying breast cancer patients, but which, as the researchers showed, can be used in other cancers as well.
