In bulk DNA Sequencing the DNA from multiple cells is sequenced. This is in contrast to single cell sequencing where cells are sequenced individually. HTAN centers are generating bulk DNA sequencing data with varying panels including Whole Exome Sequencing and targeted sequencing. The targeted DNA can be circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) as well as DNA from the nucleus.
Files organized by levels
Level 1 – Raw read data (FASTQs)
Level 2 – Genome Aligned Reads (BAM)
Level 3 – Sample Level Summary (VCF/MAF)
