Case sharing - gastric cancer-related genetic variation information

Gastric cancer is a heterogeneous disease with different molecular etiologies. We performed WGS of 100 pairs of tumor-normal samples at an average effective sequencing depth of 84X.

Bioinformatics analysis identified tumour-specific somatic mutations in known genes such as TP53, ARID1A, CDH1 and in a newly discovered gene MUC6. Mutations in driver genes were also found including CTNNA2, GLI3, and RNF43. The study also revealed that that 4.3% of RHOA mutations in diffuse tumors were closely related to the most common interference pathways (adhesion links and focal adhesions) in gastric cancer.

Animal or Plant


The genome-wide sequencing of animals and plants genomes is important to understand differences in species and varieties. The information can be used for population genetic polymorphism analysis, evolutionary analysis, identification of new functional genes, breeding guidance and genetic modifications.

Case sharing – Genome-wide resequencing for Soybean

Identification of domesticated and improved genes in the soybean genome is important for guiding soybean breeding. Three types of germplasm lines were selected in this study. A total of 302 representative soybean germplasm resources were sequenced at a depth was greater than 11X. The results showed that the genetic polymorphism of soybean was significantly reduced during acclimation and improvement. Genome-wide association analysis on seed size, seed coat color, growth habit, oil content and other traits identified a series of significant associated genetic sites.
