The colorectal cancer cohort was assembled from 363 stage II and III patients from 4 European Centres (Barcelona, Dublin, Florence, Aberdeen). Within this cohort, samples from 194 patients with 50% or more tumour content as assessed by Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E ) staining were taken forward for RNA and DNA extraction. High quality transcriptomics data were obtained for 156 samples using the Almac Xcel array (Almac Diagnostics, Craigavion, UK).
