The clonal freshwater crayfish is regarded as an invasive species that threatens endemic wild species, but its success may help scientists better understand how cancer spreads.
To determine whether our insights were sensitive to the method used for distinguishing between classes of heterogeneous infections, we used a newly described method (classifier of tandem repeats [ClassTR]) (8), which uses 24-loci mycobacterial interspersed repetitive units-variable number of tandem repeats (MIRU-VNTR) data to distinguish polyclonal and clonal infections, and we compared these findings with an analysis based on the standard threshold-based approach (9).
Unlike current methods, CloneR enables generation of clonal cell lines without single-cell adaptation, thus minimizing the risk of acquiring genetic abnormalities.
