BG lab goes for a rural retreat

This last week we – the whole lab – spent a couple of days in a rural house near Ripoll, in the central area of Catalonia. We dedicated these two days to talk about the work we do and the projects we are developing in a more relaxed environment. We could experience again that the independence of our everyday working habits fosters our creativity. This made it possible that those were two very fruitful and interesting days.

Finding correlated genes on TCGA expression data.

We have published a new section in IntOGen in collaboration with Hautaniemi Lab, where you can do a gene correlation with the gene expression results of TCGA (The Cancer Genome Atlas) for a given subset of patients that share some specific clinical annotations. Then you will be able to browse your correlations next to global gene expression, SNP survival and DNA methylation analyses. The data analyzed so far includes 4 tumor types from TCGA: glioblastoma multiforme (GBM; 507 samples), ovarian serous adenocarcinoma (OV; 546 samples), breast invasive carcinoma (BRCA; 525 samples) and colon adenocarcinoma (COAD; 161 samples).
