UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute’s Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative Database Funded by St. Baldrick’s Foundation

 

UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute’s Treehouse Childhood Cancer Initiative and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation are making an 11,000+ tumor database available for use by all researchers in the pediatric cancer community and beyond in our continued battle against childhood cancer.

The tumor database, available at https://treehouse.xenahubs.net and free for any researcher to use, contains RNA-Seq gene expression data, as well as age, disease and sex.

Treehouse thanks its supporters, in particular the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine for funding this important work. We extend a warm thanks as well to our clinical partners.
