The TCGA Ovarian Phenotype Research Group is part of the CIP TCGA Radiology Initiative focused on analyzing images from the TCGA-OV collections. Images which correlate to the Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma tissue data in the TCGA Data Portal are continuing to be gathered for submission to TCIA.
According to the TCGA page on Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma, TCGA researchers have:
Per TCGA and TCIA Guidelines formal permission requests are still required to submit publications using TCGA-OV data. Please see the following links for more information about the freedom-to-publish criteria for these data sets:
No restrictions; all data available without limitations
Projects have not reached 100 imaging cases; Please check with firstname.lastname@example.org prior to any publication
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions about these policies.
Imaging Source Site (ISS) Groups will be populated and governed by participants from institutions that have provided imaging data to the archive for a given cancer type. Modeled after TCGA analysis groups, these groups are given the opportunity to publish a marker paper for a given cancer type per the aforementioned publication policy. It is hoped that this will generate increased participation in the building of these multi-institutional data sets that become an open community resource. Current TCGA-OV source sites include:
Please contact Dr. Evis Sala (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have scientific questions you would like to direct to the TCGA-OV ISS or are interested in collaborating with their group.
