Cytognomix has designed and developed a unique type of reagents for targeted hybridization capture of breast cancer genes. These capture reagent have maximal coverage of complete unique gene sequences, covering exons, but also promoter, intronic, and downstream flanking genomic regions. This extensive coverage of regulatory regions is intended to produce companion data for our patented methods for interpreting non-coding variants of unknown significance. Besides single copy sequences, divergent interspersed repetitive element probes extend the genomic coverage in these genes. This targeting results in the most comprehensive coverage available (Dorman et al. Nucleic Acids Res., 2013).
Our hybridization capture array products can be used for mutation detection in hereditary cancer and pharmacogenetic applications and are ready-to-ship:
A. Inherited breast and ovarian cancer complete gene and flanking regions (Caminsky et al. submitted; Mucaki et al. submitted):
Version 1: BRCA1, BRCA2, ATM, CDH1, CHEK2, PALB2, and TP53.
Version 2: ATM, BARD1, BRCA1, BRCA2, CDH1, CHEK2, EPCAM, MLH1, MRE11A, MSH2, MSH6, MUTYH, NBN, PALB2, PMS2, PTEN, RAD51B, STK11, TP53, and XRCC2

C. A subscription to our MutationForecaster system provides genome browser access to our genome-wide custom probe designs through the cytogenetic Visual Analytics Decision Support Tool. This tool displays the locations of oligonucleotide products used in hybridization enrichment for Next generation sequencing.
