Integration of germline and tumor genomes in CLL

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Project Summary: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a neoplasm of B-cell lymphocytes. It has a strong genetic component with 45 inherited single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS). Using these SNPs, we computed a polygenic risk score (PRS), which is a weighted average of the risk alleles across the SNPs with the weights being the log odds ratios from SNP associations, and found that individuals in the upper quintile had a ~3-fold increased risk of CLL compared to the middle quintile (P
