The third set of papers out this week from The Cancer Genome Atlas touches on ways to cluster tumors, oncogenic processes that contribute to oncogenesis, and more.
The researchers used DNA methylation profiles to define 82 central nervous system tumor classes, some of which differed from WHO tumor classes.
A proteomic and targeted exome sequencing study of diffuse-type gastric cancer led to proteomic subtypes with distinct mutation, survival, and potential treatment patterns.
Researchers profiled cancer gene mutations, expression, protein patterns, and other features in 23 recurrent or metastatic cases of olfactory neuroblastoma.
A proportion of pediatric ALL patients appear to have germline TP53 mutations associated with later diagnoses, poorer outcomes, and increased secondary cancer risk.
New studies suggest low-, intermediate-, and high-methylation subgroups exist in juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, potentially offering insights into patient outcomes.
The Danish informatics firm is exploring analytical tools for its InWeb_InBioMap network, which currently contains more than 700,000 protein-protein interactions.
Using RNA sequences for thousands of cells, researchers looked at head and neck squamous cell carcinomas and proposed streamlined expression subtypes.
Investigators have established hundreds of patient-derived xenografts, cell lines, and tumor samples, which appear to represent a wide range of melanoma molecular subtypes.
Using an integrated omics approach, researchers identified non-muscle invasive bladder cancer subtypes, along with pathways that are frequently altered in the disease.
The American Prospect writes that the pilot program to test the DNA of migrants could lead to more family separations.
An international commission is to develop a report on how researchers, clinicians, and regulators should evaluate the clinical applications of human germline genome editing.
The US Department of Agriculture presents a new blueprint for animal genomic research.
In Genome Research this week: repetitive element deletion linked to altered methylation and more in form of muscular dystrophy; human contamination in draft bacterial and archaeal genomes; and more.
