Searching for the EGFR vIII variant in OncoLand

Matt Newman

OncoLand data is based on a known gene model (UCSC), which can sometime miss the detection of certain "novel" transcripts in the default visualizations.  By storing the exon junction level coverage, we can search out "novel" junctions.  In this example, we look at the EGFR vIII variant, which is not part of the UCSC gene model, but can be discovered here by using the variety of tools in Oncoland.
