<h2>Registered Report: Melanoma genome sequencing reveals frequent <em>PREX2</em> mutations</h2> <p><br> <strong>Abstract:</strong></p> <p>The <a href="https://osf.io/e81xl/wiki/home/" rel="nofollow">Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology</a> seeks to address growing concerns about reproducibility in scientific research by conducting replications of 50 papers in the field of cancer biology published between 2010 and 2012. This Registered Report describes the proposed replication plan of key experiments from ‘Melanoma genome sequencing reveals frequent <em>PREX2</em> mutations’ by Berger and colleagues, published in <em>Nature</em> in 2012 (<a href="http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v485/n7399/full/nature11071.html" rel="nofollow">Berger et al., 2012</a>). The key experiments that will be replicated are those reported in Figure 3B and Supplementary Figure S6. In these experiments, Berger and colleagues show that somatic <em>PREX2</em> mutations identified through whole-genome sequencing of human melanoma can contribute to enhanced lethality of tumor xenografts in nude mice (Figure 3B, S6B, and S6C; <a href="http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v485/n7399/full/nature11071.html" rel="nofollow">Berger et al., 2012</a>). The Reproducibility Project: Cancer Biology is a collaboration between the <a href="https://cos.io/" rel="nofollow">Center for Open Science</a> and <a href="https://www.scienceexchange.com/" rel="nofollow">Science Exchange</a>, and the results of the replications will be published by <a href="https://elifesciences.org/" rel="nofollow"><em>eLife</em></a>.</p> <hr> <h3>Contents</h3> <p>This component contains additional materials relating to the Registered Report for Study 44: Berger et al., 2012 (<em>Nature</em>).</p> <p>The published Registered Report can be found <a href="https://elifesciences.org/content/3/e04180" rel="nofollow">here</a>. </p> <p><strong>Registered Report Initial Draft</strong>:</p> <ul> <li>This document represents the first draft of the selected experimental protocols.
