  1. 1. Exploring next-generation sequencing in chronic lymphocytic leukemia

    Author : Viktor Ljungström; Tobias Sjöblom; Richard Rosenquist; Larry Mansouri; Mats Nilsson; Catherine J. Wu; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CLL; next-generation sequencing; clonal evolution; stereotypy; RPS15; NFKBIE; Medical Genetics; Medicinsk genetik;

    Abstract : Next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques have led to major breakthroughs in the characterization of the chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) genome with discovery of recurrent mutations of potential prognostic and/or predictive relevance. However, before NGS can be introduced into clinical practice, the precision of the techniques needs to be studied in better detail. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tagging systems for sequencing large cohorts

    Author : Mårten Neiman; Afshin Ahmadian; Peter Savolainen; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; next generation sequencing; genotyping; massive parallel sequencing; 454; Pyrosequencing; amplicon sequencing; enrichment; DNA barcodes; Genetics; Genetik;

    Abstract : Advances in sequencing technologies constantly improves the throughput andaccuracy of sequencing instruments. Together with this development comes newdemands and opportunities to fully take advantage of the massive amounts of dataproduced within a sequence run. READ MORE

  3. 3. Next Generation Sequencing for Measurable Residual Disease Detection in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

    Author : Erik Delsing Malmberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute myeloid leukemia; minimal residual disease; massively parallel sequencing; next generation sequencing; NPM1; alloHCT;

    Abstract : Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is the most common form of acute leukemia and generally associated with a poor prognosis. For both children and adults, the treatment is based on chemotherapy. Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (alloHCT) is reserved for patients with intermediate or high risk of relapse, due to its associated risks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sequencing cancer

    Author : Una Kjällquist; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Cancer forms highly heterogeneous tissues at several molecular levels, genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic and other epigenetic traits. The level of complexity is further augmented by the dynamic nature of tumor progression with cancer cell populations evolving in a clonal manner. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods to Prepare DNA for Efficient Massive Sequencing

    Author : Sverker Lundin; Joakim Lundeberg; Harold Swerdlow; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA; Massive sequencing; Next Generation Sequencing; Library Preparation; Barcoding; Multiplexing;

    Abstract : Massive sequencing has transformed the field of genome biology due to the continuous introduction and evolution of new methods. In recent years, the technologies available to read through genomes have undergone an unprecedented rate of development in terms of cost-reduction. READ MORE
