Ovarian Cancer Cell Lines

Genes associated with OVCA development of cisplatin resistance (as measured by EC50) were identified using Pearson's correlation. The gene lists were generated by load CellLines.rdata and running the processOVCACellLineGenes() function. Files/support scripts/etc are described below: The resulting probeset lists (with correlation coefficients): A Summary Table with annotations is available.
These genes were loaded into GeneGO MetaCore and significantly enriched pathways were identified (see the spreadsheet for the full list).

North American Ovarian Cancer Patients

We looked at a set of 142 ovarian cancer patient samples collected from two different sources, for consideration of the BAD Pathway. The full 142 samples are annotated in this file and consist of the following:
  1. 114 samples arrayed and publicly available from Duke University (link). These sample names were standardized according to this mapping, to be consistent with the Moffitt samples.
  2. 28 Moffitt Cancer samples. The expression data is available as GSE23554 in GEO (Gene Expression Omnibus). They are also available here as a zip file of CEL files.
The patient data was normalized together using rma (see exprs-ovcapatients-rma.txt for expression values). An R object (as an ExpressionSet) was created that included the 142 patients with clinical data. There are 101 Complete Responders (CR) and 41 Incomplete Responders (IR). Performing a t test between expression in these two groups yields 397 probesets, as annotated here.
