ChiTaRS 5.0: the comprehensive database of chimeric transcripts matched with druggable fusions and 3D chromatin maps

2019 Nucleic Acids Research  
It extends our understanding of the evolution of chimeric transcripts in eukaryotes and contributes to the analysis of 3D genome conformational changes and the functional role of chimeras in the etiopathogenesis  ...  Thus, this improved version is an extensive catalogue of chimeras from multiple species.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors would like to thank MPLabs Ltd for their efforts in making ChiTaRS 5.0 a reality through website design and back-end support.  ...

Point mutations found in glioma tissue biopsies were also found in the cfDNA samples (95% identity). Finally, we identified novel chimeric genes (gene-gene fusions) in both tumour and cfDNA samples.  ...  Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common type of glioma, and is uniformly fatal. The median survival of treated GBM patients is 12-15 months.  ...  ChiTaRS 2.1-an 555 improved database of the chimeric transcripts and RNA-seq data with novel sense-antisense chimeric 556 RNA transcripts.
