In a recent statement, researchers at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (DC, USA) have announced that a valuable cache of brain cancer data has been made freely available to researchers worldwide.
The dataset, REMBRANDT (REpository for Molecular BRAin Neoplasia DaTa), which is hosted and supported by Georgetown, is one of only two such large collections in the USA. It includes genomic data from 261 samples of glioblastoma, 170 of astrocytoma, 86 tissues of oligodendroglioma, and a number that are mixed or of an unknown subclass. The outcomes data include more than 13,000 data points.
