DNAseq AND THE ANALYSIS
OF TUMOR SAMPLE COMPOSITION

Whole exome and other targeted sequencing is being employed regularly to obtain information on the somatic mutations in a tumor. This sequencing data also provide detailed information on a rich set of loci that are polymorphic in the germline. In this talk, we will describe how this information can be leveraged to obtain the total and allele specific copy numbers which will then be used to obtain the tumor cellular fraction in the sample and clone(s) that make up the tumor.
