Circular RNAs in Medulloblastoma
Recent research has found that newly identified RNA molecules, circular RNAs, play a role in an increasing number of cancers. Using samples provided by the Children’s Brain Tumor Network, this project will generate the largest open-access dataset of circular RNAs in SHH medulloblastoma.
