How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
The genomic profiling of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the bloodstream should provide clinically relevant information on therapeutic efficacy and help predict cancer survival. Here, we contrasted the genomic profiles of CTC pools recovered from metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients using different enrichment strategies (CellSearch, Parso...

Transmissible cancers are malignant cell clones that spread among individuals through transfer of living cancer cells. Several such cancers, collectively known as bivalve transmissible neoplasia (BTN), are known to infect and cause leukaemia in marine bivalve molluscs. This is the case of BTN clones affecting the common cockle, Cerastoderma edule ,...

The genomic profiling of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the bloodstream should provide clinically relevant information on therapeutic efficacy and help predict cancer survival. However, the molecular characterization of CTCs has so far proven extremely difficult. A variety of technologies have been developed for CTC isolation, but so far the imp...
Article
Recurrence of tumor cells following local and systemic therapy is a significant hurdle in cancer. Most patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) will relapse, despite resection of the metastatic lesions. A better understanding of the evolutionary history of recurrent lesions is required to identify the spatial and temporal patterns of metas...

Background: Colorectal cancer (CRC) development is generally accepted as a sequential process, with genetic mutations determining phenotypic tumor progression. However, matching genetic profiles with histological transition requires the analyses of temporal samples from the same patient at key stages of progression. Results: Here, we compared th...

High-grade neuroendocrine lung malignancies (large-cell neuroendocrine cell carcinoma, LCNEC, and small-cell lung carcinoma, SCLC) are among the most deadly lung cancer conditions with no optimal clinical management. The biological relationships between SCLC and LCNEC are still largely unknown and a current matter of debate as growing molecular dat...

Multiregional bulk sequencing data is necessary to characterize intratumor genetic heterogeneity. Novel somatic variant calling approaches aim to address the particular characteristics of multiregional data, but it remains unclear to which extent they improve compared to single-sample strategies. Here we compared the performance of 16 single-nucleo...
