Somatic Copy Number Analysis of Endometrial Carcinomas
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most commonly diagnosed gynecologic malignancy in the United States and is the sixth leading cause of cancer death amongst American women. The purpose of this study was to identify somatic (tumor-specific) copy number alterations in 7 clear cell ECs, 31 serous ECs, 17 endometrioid ECs, and the clear cell components of 2 endometrioid/clear cell ECs. To this end, DNAs from de-identified primary endometrial tumors and matched non-tumor tissues or blood were hybridized to high-density Illumina Infinium HumanHap650Y Beadchips or to high-density Human660W-Quad Beadchips and the data analyzed to annotate somatic copy number alterations throughout the genome.
