Study
ICGC (GBM-US) : Glioblastoma Multiforme - TCGA, US
Study ID
COSU329
Description
The International Cancer Genome Consortium is a global effort with the primary goal of generating and freely distributing a comprehensive catalogue of the genomic abnormalities underlying 50 different cancer types. All the validated Simple Mutations in this release have been recovered from the Data Coordination Center (DCC) and curated into COSMIC.

In 2008, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) announced their first results of screening 91 Glioblastoma tumours through a set of 601 candidate genes (Pubmed), with an additional data release some months later on the TCGA data portal. This study comprises additional mutation data from these samples, after the initial two pilot phases of this project.
