Breast cancer is a complex and heterogeneous disease. Signaling by estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and/or human EGF-like receptor 2 (HER2) is a main driver in the development and progression of a large majority of breast tumors. Molecular characterization of primary tumors has identified major subtypes that correlate with ER/PR/HER2(More)
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive subtype defined by the lack of estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 expression. Expression of miR-21, an oncomiR, is frequently altered and may be distinctly expressed in the tumor stroma. Because tumor lesions are a complex mixture of cell types, we(More)
Experiments involving the high-throughput quantification of image data require algorithms for automation. A challenge in the development of such algorithms is to properly interpret signals over a broad range of image characteristics, without the need for manual adjustment of parameters. Here we present a new approach for locating signals in image data,(More)
