Structural variation Research SpotlightLiterature
Date: 22nd July 2019
Nanopore long-read, high-throughput PromethION™ sequencing enables comprehensive structural variation detection and resolution across whole cancer genomes.
Sakamoto et al. revealed a novel class of complex structural aberrations in lung cancer cell lines and clinical samples, through nanopore whole-genome and transcriptome sequencing. The identification and thorough characterisation of complex structural variants in cancer genomes provides valuable insight into the pathogenesis of cancer. This brings the potential to aid effective, tailored disease management in the future.
