Clinical Interpretation of Somatic Mutations
Somatic mutation refers to an alteration in DNA that occurs after conception. Somatic mutations can occur in any of the cells of the body except the germ cells (sperm and egg) and therefore are not passed on to children. These alterations can (but do not always) cause cancer or other diseases. Together with our partners, we provide computational pipeline services to analyze cancer gene panels, whole exome and genome sequencing data to help inform healthcare decisions.
