Speaker: Tony Papenfuss – WEHI and Peter Mac Bioinformatics
Discovering structural variants in cancer (and other) genomes
In this talk, I will give an overview of the development and application of methods for predicting genomic rearrangements in tumour genomes in my lab over the last 6 or 7 years. I will particularly focus on how our data, and the specific research questions we have looked at, influenced our thinking and approaches. This work includes a boutique method and two generic methods for identifying genomic rearrangements, and a method for classifying interesting signatures in rearrangements. I will also discuss how these tools are being used in clinical cancer genomics and in applications outside of cancer.
