New Publication from Center for Individualized Medicine

By AJ Montpetit ajmontpetit

Novel TRAF1-ALK fusion identified by deep RNA sequencing of anaplastic large cell lymphoma  Abstract Chromosomal translocations leading to expression of abnormal fusion proteins play a major role in the pathogenesis of various hematologic malignancies. The recent development of high-throughput, “deep” sequencing has allowed discovery of novel translocations leading to a rapid increase in understanding these diseases. Translocations […]
