Somatic mobile element detection in pediatric cancer samples

As the role of somatic insertions of mobile elements in pediatric cancer is relatively unknown, my master project focuses on finding these insertions in pediatric cancer samples. To that end, I will first improve hour in-house tool Mobster to detect somatic insertions in addition to germline and then use it together with other already existing tools to assess the frequency of these insertions per cancer super type.
