Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
EGAD00001002252 This data set contains next generation sequencing (NGS) data of two serial tumor samples (primary and a metastasis) from a patient with colorectal cancer showing an ERBB2 c.2264T>C (p.Leu755Ser). NGS was performed using the Illumina TruSeq Amplicon Cancer Panel (TSACP, Illumina) covering 212 amplicons in 48 cancer associated genes on the Illumina MiSeq sequencing platform. The dataset contains two BAM files. Illumina MiSeq 2
EGAD00001004133 Epigenetic profiling of colorectal cancer initiating cells (CC-ICs) to identify bivalently marked genes (H3K4me3 and H3K27me3 ChIP-seq), and investigation of changes in transcriptome following EZH2 inhibition using RNA-seq. Illumina HiSeq 2500,NextSeq 500 17
EGAD00001004269 This dataset includes 112 head and neck tumour samples with matched normal (blood) samples sequenced using a custom hybrid capture panel. Illumina HiSeq 2000 224
EGAD00001005140 In order to elucidate the biological pathways altered by sphingolipid modulation with N-(4-hydroxyphenyl) retinamide (4HPR) treatment in human HSPC that may contribute to the restraint in proliferation while promoting persistence of HSC self-renewal, as well as determine the mechanism of synergy in enhancement of HSC self-renewal with CB CD34+ agonists UM171 and StemRegenin 1 (SR1), we performed RNA-sequencing (RNA-Seq) of 3 pools of lin-CB cells following 2 or 4 days with DMSO, 4HPR, UM171+SR1 or 3-Factor (4HPR+UM171+SR1). We identified modulation of sphingolipid metabolism regulates self-renewal through activating coordinated stress pathways that coalesce on endoplasmic reticulum stress and autophagy programs.

EGAD00001006447 To elucidate the epigenetic changes which occur when human long-term hematopoietic stem cells (LT-HSC) become activated we performed Bulk ATAC-Seq on 13 sorted bulk hematopoietic populations from cord bloodas well as single-cell ATAC-Seq upon CD34+CD38-CD45RA- cells enriched for HSC as well as CD34+/CD38+ progenitor cells both from cord blood. These studies revealed gains of chromatin accessibility around CTCF binding sites during HSPC activation, as such we additionally performed Low-C to directly profile the 3D conformation of human cord-blood derived LT-HSC and Short-term hematopoietic stem cells (ST-HSC), as well as Hi-C , ATAC-Seq and CTCF ChIP-Seq upon the OCIAML-2 cell line in which CTCF sites gained during LT-HSC activation are enriched. Finally we transduced human cord-blood LT-HSC with an shCTCF vector; in-vitro cultured LT-HSC cells harbouring shCTCF were used to perform RNA-Seq, and scATAC-Seq was performed on CD34+/CD38- human CB cells transduced with shCTCF, four weeks post xeno-transplantation into mice. Collectively these studies have helped us demonstrate the role of 3D chromatin conformation changes during human LT-HSC activation. Illumina HiSeq 2000,Illumina HiSeq 2500,NextSeq 500,unspecified 62
EGAD00001006576 The PMCC AML RNAseq dataset consists of 81 AML patient samples (clinical data in Supplemental Table 11 of manuscript), processed in two batches. These patient samples are able to engraft in the NSG (NOD.Cg PrkdcscidIl2rgtm1Wjl /SzJ) mouse model. Five patients (90543, 598, 90240, 110484, 100500) were included in both batches. Viaably frozen material from the Leukemia Tissue Bank at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre/ University Health Network were thawed by dropwise addition of X-VIVO + 50% fetal calf serum supplemented with DNase (100μg/mL final concentration, Roche). RNA was extracted from bulk peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) using the RNeasy Micro Kit (Qiagen Inc.). A paired-end 76 base-pair flow-cell lane Illumina High seq 2000 yielded an average of 240 million sequence reads aligning to genome per sample at the Genome Sciences Centre, BC Cancer Agency for cohort 1. Cohort 2 was subjected to 125 bp, paired-end RNA-sequencing on the Illumina HiSeq 2500 with an average of 50 million reads/sample at the Centre for Applied Genomics, Sick Kids Hospital. Illumina HiSeq 2500 85
EGAD00001006582 To investigate the molecular and biological pathways altered by S1PR3OE in human hematopoietic stem cells (HSC), we performed RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq) of LT- and ST-HSC 3 days after transduction with control or S1PR3 overexpression (OE) lentiviral vectors. LT-HSC and ST-HSC from 3 pool of CB lin- were FACS-purified, cells were prestimulated for 4 hours and transduced with lentiviral vectors. At day 3, 2000-5300 BFP+ cells were FACS-purified for RNA isolation with a PicoPure kit. We were able to isolate only 1600-1800 BFP+ cells from LT-HSC control samples as opposed to 4000-5400 BFP+ cells from S1PR3OE samples. Thus, we pooled all control BFP+ LT-HSC cells into one sample for RNA-seq analysis. BFP- LT-HSC from control vector transduction were purified from CB1 as an additional LT-HSC control. Nextera libraries generated from 10 ng RNA from 5 LT-HSC samples (2 controls, 3 S1PR3OE) and 6 ST-HSC samples (3 controls, 3 S1PR3OE) were subjected to 125 bp, paired-end RNA-sequencing on the Illumina HiSeq 2500 with an average of 50 million reads/sample at the Center for Applied Genomics, Sick Kids Hospital.

EGAD00001006849 Cancer cells enter a reversible drug tolerant persister (DTP) state to evade death from both chemotherapies and targeted agents. It is increasingly appreciated that the DTP state is an important driver of therapy failure and tumor relapse. We combined cellular barcoding and mathematical modeling in patient-derived colorectal cancer xenograft models to identify and characterize the cancer cells capable of generating DTPs in response to standard-of-care chemotherapy. Barcode analysis revealed no loss in clonal complexity of tumors that entered the DTP state and recurred following treatment cessation. Our data fits a mathematical model in which all cancer cells, and not a small subpopulation, possess an equipotent capacity to enter the DTP state. Mechanistically, we determined that DTPs display remarkable transcriptional and functional similarities to diapause, a reversible state of suspended embryonic development triggered by unfavorable environmental conditions. Our study provides new insights into how cancer cells use a developmentally conserved mechanism to drive the DTP state pointing to novel therapeutic opportunities to target diapause-like DTPs.
