Genomic underpinnings of brain tumors expanded
TCGA researchers analyzed nearly 300 cases of diffuse low- and intermediate-grade gliomas, which together comprise lower-grade gliomas. LGGs occur mainly in adults and include astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas and oligoastrocytomas.

Update: The Benefits of Looking Across Many Cancer Genomes
TCGA's Pan-Cancer project publishes its integrative analysis of TCGA cancer types. The Pan-cancer project's goal is to assemble TCGA’s wealth of data across tumor types, analyze and interpret those data, and finally, make both the analyses and the data freely available.
