  • Repeating mutations

    Good evening people,

    I am working in a lab where we use S5 IonTorrent sequencer and we are sequencing with Colon and Lung V2 panel different type of samples: colon cancers, lung cancers, ovarian cancer, liver cancer, also we sequenced few samples from buccal swab for experiment. In 80% plus samples sequenced with this NGS panel we detect 4 repeating mutations: FGFR3:1807894 G>A; TP53:7579472 G>C; EGFR:55228053 A>T; EGFR:55249063 G>A. At first we thought it was contamination then we repeat same samples with re isolated DNA and we got same result, also we changed library preparation kit, we also asked for colleagues who used same panel do they get same mutations and they do. After 2 years of sequencing we conclude it is not contamination but something different. Could you, please, give me some information about this issue we have?

    Sincerely AGC team.

    All of these are common variants, see below for allele frequencies from The 1000 Genomes Project. Your frequencies will vary depending on the genetic background of the samples.
    FGFR3:1807894 (rs7688609) G=0.0439 A=0.9561
    TP53:7579472 (rs1042522) G=0.4571 C=0.5429
    EGFR:55228053 (rs1558544) A=0.2266 T=0.7734
    EGFR:55249063 (rs1050171) G=0.5673 A=0.4327

        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...
