The aim of our DFG funded project is to identify novel molecular alterations being involved in the pathogenesis of choroid plexus tumors (CPT) and to explore their functional role. CPT are rare intraventricular neoplasms derived from the choroid plexus tissue. Despite frequent copy-number alterations and some CPT harboring TP53 mutations, recurrent driver mutations are not on record. Therefore, we aim at analyzing SNVs, InDels and structural variants including gene fusions from next generation sequencing data (whole exome sequencing, whole transcriptome sequencing). The functional role of new variants will be characterized in cell culture experiments.
