Sequencing Challenging FFPE Cancer Samples to Identify Cancer Driver Genes and Novel Biomarkers

Abstract

Biopsies or tissue samples from cancer patients are routinely stored in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks. Sequencing these samples has proved challenging, because the process partially degrades and limits the amount of genomic material. Advanced approaches, such as nextgeneration sequencing (NGS), generate high-quality genomic data and… (More)
