Apostle Triton Bioinformatics Technology

Apostle Triton is a bioinformatics technology that utilizes the data from a curated internal cancer database of 30,000 patients with an unprecedented resolution.

Background

  • Cancer is a genetically heterogeneous disease.
  • Somatic mutations exist in both cancer and normal cells.
  • We still know very little about the genetics of cancer. There is a lacking of a comprehensive and coherent way to mine the big data repository of cancer genetics and apply the applicable findings.
  • The clinical application of liquid biopsy is further complicated by the characteristics of cell free tumor nucleic acids: low concentration, complex fragmentation, etc.

Here, we introduce Apostle Triton, a bioinformatics framework designed for liquid biopsy, which utilizes the big data from cancer genomics, evaluates disease effects of somatic mutations/variants and expression signatures, and apply the findings in the settings of liquid biopsy.

Using Apostle MiniMax cfDNA Isolation Technology a recent clinical study in 2821 myeloid or lymphoid neoplasm patients shows that liquid biopsy using targeted NGS is reliable in detecting chromosomal structural abnomalities in myeloid neoplasms. The study supports the use of liquid biopsy for early diagnosis and monitoring of patients with myeloid neoplasms. Read article
