Exome sequencing allows cancer researchers to assess only coding regions, which frequently contain mutations that affect tumor progression. Depending on experimental needs, the content for cancer exome sequencing can also be expanded to untranslated regions and microRNA (miRNA) binding sites. Because it offers an accessible combination of turnaround time and price, exome sequencing is the method of choice for many tumor-normal comparisons.Learn More About Exome Sequencing
Library preparation and exome enrichment are critical to the success of any exome sequencing experiment. For cancer whole-exome sequencing, the ability to enrich limited DNA samples is especially important. Exome enrichment methods that uniformly and specifically enrich content enable reliable identification of coding variants.Learn More About Target Enrichment
Cancer researchers use exome, RNA, and chromatin immunoprecipitation sequencing methods in their search for tumor-associated gene expression profiles.Read Article
Researchers use a variety of methods, including whole-exome sequencing, to study a deadly oral cancer. Dr. Majumder and his team have identified somatic variants and other genomic alterations that may influence the course of the disease.Read Article
