PMID: 29045840
DOI: 10.1016/j.celrep.2017.09.046

[…] we did not find events that replicated across all populations in hydroxyurea., to reconstruct clonal expansions in the waxna populations, we used background genetic variants as markers. using the clonehd algorithm (), we inferred the subclonal genotypes and their frequency in the populations, both of which are unknown a priori (; ). we found at least one subclone in all waxna populations […]

DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2017.00083

[…] hidden markov model framework to simultaneously infer cna and loh segments from read depths and digital allele ratios at heterozygous variant loci in the genome from whole genome sequencing data. clonehd (fischer et al., ) provides a statistical framework using read depth, b-allele frequencies, and vafs to infer the clonal population structure of a tumor, allowing the simultaneous analysis […]

[…] been combined to increase the discriminative power in the reconstruction process. a summary of methods following this strategy and their key features are given in .table 2, the methods chat  and clonehd  estimate cellular prevalences of both snvs and cnas but do not set them into a phylogenetic context. subcloneseeker infers trees based on cellular prevalences of both snv and cna data .

[…] ontology tools and kegg pathway analysis. ascat-ngs v.2.1 (; ) was used to infer tumour copy number data, and a combination of both copy number and single nucleotide variation data was analysed in clonehd to assess clonality ()., for the assessment of the ex vivo assay by ihc, a molecular response was defined as a positive p-her2 or p-egfr (2+ or 3+) becoming a negative score (0+ or 1+ ). […]

[…] developed methods., the methods for the detection of genetic heterogeneity in cancer can be also used to detect subclonal mutation conferring drug resistance. this idea has been investigated using clonehd [], a new subclonal reconstruction algorithm optimized using both information about somatic mutations and correlated changes generated by copy-number changes. the method has been applied […]
