RNA fusions for more targeted help in cancer

The Leipzig-based company ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH has integrated a new module for detecting fusion events into its analysis software for NGS-based genetic tests Seamless NGS. A dilution study was used to compare the analysis, in which reference samples were mixed with known RNA fusions in different degrees of dilution. The evaluation of the results showed that Seamless NGS not only reached the sensitivity of the previous evaluation when detecting the CBFB-MYH11 fusion, but exceeded it by an order of magnitude.
