A total of 50 human ovary samples were used in analysis: 23 tissue samples laser capture microdissected from an ovary with a benign serous tumor (specifically 4 normal epithelium samples, 5 tumor samples, 6 stroma samples adjacent to the tumor, and 8 stroma samples distal of the tumor), and 27 tissue samples laser capture microdissected from an ovary with a malignant serous tumor (specifically 5 normal epithelium samples, 8 tumor samples, 7 stroma samples adjacent to the tumor, and 7 stroma samples distal of the tumor). Additional cel files were provided which, although were used in the quality control of the data set, were not used in the final experimental analysis. 8 replicates are included as cel files (1 from each cohort previously listed). 14 cel files were also included which failed quality control. Although the replicate and failed cel files were not used in the final analysis, they may still be interesting in other research.
