The TCGA Lung Phenotype Research Group is part of the CIP TCGA Radiology Initiative focused on analyzing images from the TCGA-LUAD and TCGA-LUSC (coming soon) collections. Multiple modalities of images which correlate to the lung tissue data in the TCGA Data Portal are continuing to be gathered for submission to TCIA. In the mean time a group is beginning preliminary discussions around research methods and goals.
According to the TCGA page on lung adenocarcinoma, researchers hope to make the following types of discoveries about lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD) and lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC):
- Pinpoint gene changes that divide squamous and adenocarcinoma tumors into molecular subgroups
- Distinguish patterns of gene changes between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma
- Distinguish genomic changes between smokers and non-smokers
Starting or Joining a Research Project
We are not yet hosting calls in support of TCGA lung based research projects (TCGA-LUAD, TCGA-LUSC) but are currently looking for additional interested group members. Please contact us at email@example.com if you would like to inquire about setting up a new research project, join an existing project, or be otherwise kept in the loop as this effort moves forward.
This is a listing of ongoing projects. If you are working with the TCGA lung data hosted on TCIA please let us know and we would be happy to add a section describing your project here.
- Coming soon
There are currently no imaging based publications for TCGA-LUAD or TCGA-LUSC. However, the following links contain publications from the main TCGA project, as well as their posted publication guidelines.
