Whole Genome Sequencing and RNA Sequencing of the CBTN Bank for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Atlas
Research into adult cancer has benefited greatly from large scale genomic research. Until now due to the limited resources and availability pediatric brain tumors have not been part of large-scale genomic generation efforts. The CBTN aims to create a comprehensive genomic atlas for use by researchers worldwide to unlock how brain tumors develop, grow, survive, and how they can be treated and cured.
