Product Highlights

Targeting genes previously linked to a predisposition towards cancer.

  • Developed in collaboration with Professor Nazneen Rahman and team at the Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), London
  • Targets 94 genes and 284 SNPs associated with a predisposition towards cancer

TruSight Cancer includes genes associated with both common (e.g., breast, colorectal) and rare cancers. In addition, the set includes 284 SNPs found to correlate with cancer through genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Content selection was based on expert curation of the scientific literature and other high-quality resources.

The TruSight Cancer sequencing panel provides custom oligos targeting identified regions of interest. Sufficient product is supplied for four enrichment reactions. TruSight Cancer is compatible with TruSight Rapid Capture.

TruSight Cancer Sample Datasets

6 human reference samples were prepared using the TruSight Cancer sequencing panel. These libraries were sequenced on the MiniSeq System using a high output kit at a 2 x 100 bp read length configuration with dual indexing. The total yield was 5.2 Gb with 95.8% of bases at or above Q30.
