A new study published in the journal Genome Research reports on the advances made in genetic profile and mutations associated with leukemia by Dr. Roderic Guigó from the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, who is a part of the Chronic Lymphatic Leukaemia Genome Consortium.

The Spanish Chronic Lymphatic Leukaemia Genome Consortium had previously identified the principal mutations involved in the development of the disease. However, its functional profile, the activity of these mutated genes, had not been studied. Now, the researchers have sequenced the functional part of the genome of the leukaemia cells, the RNA, and several populations of healthy B lymphocytes from 98 patients.
