Richard Moffitt, a post-doctoral fellow in our group and now a tenure-track assistant professor at SUNY Stonybrook, led the mRNA and integrative analysis for the TCGA PAAD (pancreatic cancer) working group. The TCGA PAAD team performed integrated genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic profiling of 150 pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma specimens, including samples with characteristic low neoplastic cellularity. In addition to validation of key somatic mutations, tumors with biallelic KRAS mutations were found. In addition, associations of non-coding RNAs with tumor-specific mRNA subtypes were identified. Read more at Integrated Genomic Characterization of Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma. Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network. Cancer Cell. 2017
