Classification of ovarian cancer SVs based on breakpoints. SVs are depicted by black-grey boxes, reference transcripts are represented by the blue and green boxes. Thick boxes represent open-reading-frame or coding sequences (CDS) while thin boxes represent UTRs. a Intergenic SVs – breakpoints map to annotated genes located at distant genomic locations; (b) intragenic SVs- breakpoints map within the same gene; (c) gene desert- breakpoints map to un-annotated genomic regions (gene deserts)
