An assessment of the population of cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus) and their habitat in Colombia
(2016-12-28) - Journal article,
Numerous animals have declining populations due to habitat loss, illegal wildlife trade, and climate change. The cotton-top tamarin (Saguinus oedipus) is a Critically Endangered primate species, endemic to northwest Colombia, ...
Crambled : a Shiny application to enable intuitive resolution of conflicting cellularity estimates
(2015-12-07) - Journal article,
It is now commonplace to investigate tumour samples using whole-genome sequencing, and some commonly performed tasks are the estimation of cellularity (or sample purity), the genome-wide profiling of copy numbers, and the ...
Decomposition of mutational context signatures using quadratic programming methods
(2016-06-07) - Journal article,
Methods for inferring signatures of mutational contexts from large cancer sequencing data sets are invaluable for biological research, but impractical for clinical application where we require tools that decompose the ...
Mutational signatures of ionizing radiation in second malignancies
(2016-09-12) - Journal article,
Ionizing radiation is a potent carcinogen, inducing cancer through DNA damage. The signatures of mutations arising in human tissues following in vivo exposure to ionizing radiation have not been documented. Here, we searched ...
Integration of copy number and transcriptomics provides risk stratification in prostate cancer : a discovery and validation cohort study
(2015-09) - Journal article,
Background : Understanding the heterogeneous genotypes and phenotypes of prostate cancer is fundamental to improving the way we treat this disease. As yet, there are no validated descriptions of prostate cancer subgroups ...
Whole-genome sequencing of nine esophageal adenocarcinoma cell lines
(2016-06-10) - Journal article,
Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is highly mutated and molecularly heterogeneous. The number of cell lines available for study is limited and their genome has been only partially characterized. The availability of an accurate ...
