The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Bladder Phenotype Research Group is part of the Cancer Imaging Project TCGA Radiology Initiative; an effort to build a research community focused on connecting cancer phenotypes to genotypes by providing clinical images matched to tissue specimens analyzed for The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA).
Imaging Source Site (ISS) Groups are being formed and governed by participants from institutions that have provided imaging data to the archive for a given cancer type. Modeled after TCGA analysis groups, ISS groups are given the opportunity to publish a marker paper for a given cancer type per the guidelines in the table above. This opportunity will generate increased participation in building these multi-institutional data sets as they become an open community resource. Current TCGA-BLCA source sites include:
Please contact Dr. Seth Lerner (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have scientific questions or are interested in collaborating with their group.
Publications written by other members of the research community can be found on our TCIA Publications page. Please contact us at email@example.com if you have a publication you would like us to add.
Read the Nature paper about the TCGA-BLCA genomic study. Additional TCGA publications can be found at: http://cancergenome.nih.gov/publications.
Per TCGA and TCIA Guidelines, formal permission requests are still required to submit publications using TCGA-BLCA 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.
Collection has not reached 100 imaging subjects; please check with firstname.lastname@example.org prior to any publication
