5-hydroxymethylcytosine marks promoters in colon that resist DNA hypermethylation in cancer
(2015-04-01) - Journal article,
Background : The discovery of cytosine hydroxymethylation (5hmC) as a mechanism that potentially controls DNA methylation changes typical of neoplasia prompted us to investigate its behaviour in colon cancer. 5hmC is ...
Telomerecat : a ploidy-agnostic method for estimating telomere length from whole genome sequencing data
(2018-01-22) - Journal article,
Telomere length is a risk factor in disease and the dynamics of telomere length are crucial to our understanding of cell replication and vitality. The proliferation of whole genome sequencing represents an unprecedented ...
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 ...
Genomic evolution of breast cancer metastasis and relapse
(2017-08-14) - Journal article,
Patterns of genomic evolution between primary and metastatic breast cancer have not been studied in large numbers, despite patients with metastatic breast cancer having dismal survival. We sequenced whole genomes or a panel ...
