Expression of a gene across cancer types of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA)

Expression of a gene across cancer types of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA)

The TCGA resource hosts RNA-sequencing -based expression profiles of thousands of tumors, representing dozens of cancer types. Here, the expression of a particular gene of interest is plotted across all cancer types available, showing marked over- and under-expression in specific cancers. Such a use of publicly available data is a fast and easy way to either generate hypotheses or to “validate” findings from a smaller proprietary data set.
