DOI: 10.7150/jca.21925

[…] of egf-treated data normalized to the input control and untreated data normalized to the input control., tcga rna expression data (rna seq v2 rsem) and survival data were queried and downloaded via cbioportal (http://www.cbioportal.org/), followed by data processing in r environment. the cancer types and corresponding sample size for 17 datasets were listed in table . for evaluating […]

PMCID: 5839398
PMID: 29515767
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.24188

[…] by a > ×0.7 log2 ratio with a length less than 10 mb were considered of interest for the current study., to annotated the pathogenicity of the erbb2 mutations, we have used snpeff (v4.0e) and the cbioportal annotation tool []. only pathogenic variants detected in the tumor were selected to orientate the patients to her2 inhibitors. we have mapped the mutations on a schematic structure […]

PMCID: 5872397
PMID: 29587824
DOI: 10.1186/s13059-018-1420-6

[…] a pearson correlation p < 0.05 and log2-transformed expression fold change between the highest and lowest sample > 0.5. for tcga gbm data, the co-expression gene list was acquired from cbioportal using a pearson correlation > 0.3 or < − 0.3. mirna targeting and network analysis was performed with mirdb (http://www.mirdb.org/mirdb/) and mirnet (http://www.mirnet.ca/) […]

[…] toolkit (webgestalt, http://www.webgestalt.org/). additionally, genes associated with nk cell-mediated cytotoxicity were further introduced into the cbio cancer genomics portal (cbioportal, http://www.cbioportal.org/); the breast invasive carcinoma (tcga, provisional) was selected and the messenger rna (mrna) expression data with a z score threshold of ± 2.0 was used. […]

PMCID: 5886988
PMID: 29367767
DOI: 10.1038/s41388-017-0099-6

[…] antibody specificity was assessed using kmt2d wild type and homozygote-mutant cell lines. no expression of kmt2d was detected in kmt2d-mutant cells., r code use for accessing tcga data from the cbioportal server (‘tcgaretriever’ package) and for analyzing and extracting mutational signatures (‘mutsignatures’ package) is available at the comprehensive r archive network […]

[…] and deregulation (methylation or mutation) of tfs leads to tumorigenesis. recent genomic analysis from public databases suggests that esrrg is not frequently methylated or mutated in gc (www.cbioportal.org). thus, the decreased levels of esrrg in gc are likely to be through a mechanism that is distinct from conventional tumor suppressive tfs. thus, the mechanisms underlying […]

DOI: 10.1186/s12974-018-1187-4

[…] data of 325 patients with glioma (world health organization (who) grades ii–iv) from the cgga dataset, have been described in our previous study []. besides, data from tcga were downloaded from the cbioportal (http://www.cbioportal.org/), and 671 gliomas (who grades ii–iv) were analyzed in this study., all rnaseq data were log-transformed. significantly related genes with ptpn2 expression […]

[…] (pierce) according to the manufacturer’s instruction., the mrna expression (rna seq v2 rsem) database of tcga breast invasive carcinoma (n = 1100) was downloaded from the open-source resource of the cbioportal for cancer genomics [http://www.cbioportal.org/index.do]. the log2 ratio of downloaded data was determined using cluster 3.0 software […]

[…] negative regulation of pol i support this. moreover, in certain tumour cell lines, particularly those derived from haematopoietic and lymphoid malignancies, e2f7 is expressed at very low levels (www.cbioportal.org/index.do). interestingly, in clinical disease, such as glioblastoma, e2f7 is similarly expressed at lower levels relative to normal tissue (https://www.oncomine.com). the reduced level […]
