Oncomine is an amplicon-based targeted Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) test for the identification of clinically significant somatic mutations from the DNA and RNA of 143 cancer-related genes. Alterations identified include single nucleotide variants (SNVs), insertions and deletions (indels), copy number alterations (CNAs), and oncogenic fusions (greater than 2,500 amplicons) in solid tumors.
