Master Project - Cancer Cytogenetics Beacon

This project is based on the premises that:

  • cytogenetic aberration data (e.g. chromosomal translocations) represent an important set of molecular markers, esoecially in hematologic malignancies but also in developmental diseases
  • a large body of such data exists, but is mostly difficult to access and or search, systematically
  • cytogenetic annotations can be converted into modern variant annotation forrmats, such as being developed by the Genomic Knowledge Standards workstream (GA4GH::GKS) of the _Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH)
  • an implementation to access genome variant data is the Beacon API
