Profiling of both the genome and the transcriptome promises a comprehensive, functional readout of a tissue sample, yet analytical approaches are required to translate the increased data dimensionality, heterogeneity and complexity into patient benefits. We developed a statistical approach called Texomer ( ) that performs allele-specific, tumor-deconvoluted transcriptome-exome integration of autologous bulk whole-exome and transcriptome sequencing data. Texomer results in substantially improved accuracy in sample categorization and functional variant prioritization.
