American Society of HematologyIntegrated Genomic Analysis Identifies UBTF Tandem Duplications as a Subtype-Defining Lesion in Pediatric AML

To define the spectrum of alterations common at relapse, the researchers in this study performed integrated profiling of 136 relapsed pediatric AML cases with RNA sequencing (RNA-seq), whole-genome sequencing, and target-capture sequencing. In addition, well-characterized fusion oncoproteins were identified, as were somatic mutations in UBTF (upstream binding transcription factor). See the results from the late-breaking […]
