And you wouldn't be able to distinguish a 3-fold duplication in 10% of the tumor cells from a 30-fold duplication in 1% of the tumor cells.

    Some programs may report it anyway, but I do not know of any.
    Thanks for your reply. Presumably, I suppose the prevailing FISH/IHC method to detect HER2 amplification/overexpression also suffer from the same problem?

    Any program reports somatic CNVs with tumor fraction?

    I noticed Mutect reports somatic mutations with tumor fraction (ie the percentage of tumor cells that has said mutation). I think this makes sense because it reflects tumor heterogeneity.

    But when I tried ExomeCNV for somatic CNV. It doesn't report tumor fraction. (or maybe it does but how to do that?) Do you know any somatic CNV program that reports tumor fraction?

    Thanks

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
