Analysis of whole cancer genomes
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractMassively parallel sequencing technologies have revolutionized the field of cancer genomics. On a single platform, it is now possible to identify all somatically acquired mutations of all classes in a given cancer sample in real time. However, a number of challenges to interpreting the data exist, and necessitate the development of carefully tested bioinformatic algorithms. I will present an overview of our approaches for handling the data, focusing on the practical issues, common artefacts and challenges of current methodologies.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
