ABSTRACT: Each tumor sample was cut into three pieces, yielding two end-pieces for cryovials and a middle portion placed in 10% buffered formalin. End pieces were homogenized manually and with a paddle blender (Stomacher). All paraffin-embedded blocks, including formalin-fixed tumor samples and molecular-fixed fallopian tubes, were sectioned and stained with hematoxylin and eosin prior to expert histopathological review to confirm the presence of high grade serous carcinoma. Homogenized end pieces were then flash frozen, and RNA was extracted using the miRNeasy Mini kit. Nanodrop was used to assess quality (260/280) and quantity. Total RNA samples were also QC checked using the Caliper HT RNA HiSens assay. Samples ranging from 60-255ng RNA were re-arrayed into a 96-well plate. 5'-RACE PCR was carried out as described in "The interface of malignant and immunologic clonal dynamics in high-grade serous ovarian cancer" (Zhang et al.). Briefly, this involved first round and nested PCR with TRB (TCR beta chain) and IGH (immunoglobulin heavy chain) gene-specific primers. The indexed libraries were sequenced on the Illumina HiSeq platform with paired-end 250bp reads using v2 chemistry reagents.
