This is the online help for the Ivy Glioblastoma Atlas Project web application.
The Ivy Glioblastoma Atlas Project is a foundational resource for exploring the anatomic and genetic basis of glioblastoma at the cellular and molecular levels. . The project is organized into six studies that were designed to identify genes enriched in glioblastoma, three of those studies were based on the anatomic structures or features of glioblastoma and three were focused on putative cancer stem cells.
In Situ Hybridization (ISH): Gene expression image data at cellular resolution and adjacent hematoxylin and eosin (H&E)-stained sections annotated for anatomic structures.
Anatomic Structures ISH Survey: Initial screen of 8 tumors with 341 probes to glioblastoma-enriched genes.
Anatomic Structures ISH for Enriched Genes: Final screen of 29 tumors with 50 probes to genes enriched in particular anatomic structures as identified in Anatomic Structures RNA-Seq study.
Cancer Stem Cells ISH Survey: Initial screen of 16 tumors with 63 probes to putative cancer stem cell-enriched genes to identify a 20 probe reference set, which was then used in an extensive screen of 41 tumors.
Cancer Stem Cells ISH for Enriched Genes: Final screen of 37 tumors with 79 probes to genes enriched in putative cancer stem cell clusters as identified in Cancer Stem Cells RNA-Seq study.
RNA-Seq: RNA sequencing data for anatomic structures and putative cancer stem cell clusters isolated by laser microdissection
Anatomic Structures RNA-Seq: Screen of 5 structures (Leading Edge, Infiltrating Tumor, Cellular Tumor, Microvascular Proliferation, and Pseudopalisading Cells Around Necrosis) identified by H&E staining in 9 tumors for a total of 124 RNA samples.
Cancer Stem Cells RNA-Seq: Screen of 75 putative cancer stem cell clusters identified by ISH with 20 probe reference set in 34 tumors for a total of 160 RNA samples.
Specimens: De-identified clinical data for each patient and tumor, and search portal for each tumor block’s ISH and annotated H&E image data. For detailed clinical and sequence data requiring user registration to gain access, see Ivy GAP Clinical and Genomic Database
Ivy GAP Clinical and Genomic Database: Partner database with additional clinical, genomic, and transcriptomic data for Ivy GAP.
The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA): NIH-funded initiative for genomic mapping of cancers, including glioblastoma.
