Complex MSH2 and MSH6 mutations in hypermutated microsatellite unstable advanced prostate cancer

Nat Commun
PMCID: 4176888
PMID: 25255306
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms5988

[…] e resolution of individual exons using custom Perl scripts. CNV plots were visualized using the R package ggplot2.Phenotypic MSI was assessed directly from BROCA next-generation sequencing data using mSINGS (MSI by NGS). This method evaluated up to 146 mononucleotide microsatellite loci that are captured by BROCA in both matched normal non-tumour and tumour samples. For each specimen, microsatelli […]
