Establishment and characterization of an orthotopic patient derived Group 3 medulloblastoma model for preclinical drug evaluation

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5394470
PMID: 28417956
DOI: 10.1038/srep46366

[…] signals were preprocessed and normalized with the preprocessIllumina command and data quality was evaluated using the getQC feature. Normalized beta values were used to classify the samples using the MethPed algorithm, to generate PCA plots, and to perform unsupervised hierarchical clustering. Copy number profiles are based on the Bioconductor package conumee and were generated using a publicly av […]


Stem cell cultures derived from pediatric brain tumors accurately model the originating tumors

PMCID: 5386635
PMID: 28148893
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.14826

[…] d closely together with the primary tumor they were derived from, also at later passages, showing that the cells are not considerably altered in our culture system.We next used our recently developed MethPed brain tumor classifier [] to investigate if the cultured cells retain the original brain tumor classification (Figure ). All tumors showed a strong correlation with the GBM group of tumors whi […]
