Over the past 10 years next generation sequencing (NGS) approaches deciphered a large number of genomes from a wide variety of tumor types. However, despite most relevant findings, this technology has not yet been implemented into standard diagnostic workflows. Broad access to NGS technology is still limited, sequencing/analysis times exceed clinically relevant timeframes and despite huge cuts, costs remain significant. We proposed a custom-tailored gene panel, which focuses on a selected number of relevant genes and developed a clinically oriented NGS targeted sequencing approach for the molecular characterization of Multiple Myeloma (MM) tumors, allowing the description of the tumor genetic heterogeneity and its changes under selective pressure of antitumor therapy, in a more cost effective and faster turnaround timeframe.
