The RNA-seq data, for nearly 40,000 cells from the developing mouse brain, can be explored through an interactive online interface called Cell Seek.

One of the largest repositories of molecular brain cancer data in the world, the enhanced REMBRANDT is more comprehensive than an earlier NCI-hosted version.

Using archived tumor samples from individuals with glioblastoma, researchers saw methylation variability at progression, along with potential prognostic hints.

The researchers aim to offer the half-hour diagnostic assay for use during neurosurgery to help clinicians pursue the best treatment for patients with gliomas.  

Researchers uncovered subclones within pediatric glioblastoma and diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma patients that influence the abilities of neighboring cells.

Researchers analyzed HERBY trial data to uncover a subgroup of patients with MAPK pathway alterations who had increased overall survival.

The researchers used DNA methylation profiles to define 82 central nervous system tumor classes, some of which differed from WHO tumor classes.

A genomic analysis of ependymomas from 42 patients led to nearly 1,700 suspected super enhancers, highlighting potentially targetable genes.

Many molecularly distinct subgroups emerged from a meta-analysis bringing together more than 1,000 high-grade glioma or diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma cases.

With mutation, expression, and epigenetic features from hundreds of medulloblastoma tumors, researchers characterized key features of brain tumor subtypes.
