O mém projektu

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a molecularly heterogeneous disease with a highly variable prognosis. With the advent of massively parallel sequencing, there has been substantial progress in risk stratification and therapy for CLL, however, we are still unable to accurately stratify patients for particular treatments. In this project, we will explore patterns of genetic mutations and will aim to classify CLL cases into prognostic groups using somatic mutations data.
