The high degree of similarity between the mouse and human genomes is demonstrated through analysis of the sequence of mouse chromosome 16 (Mmu 16), which was obtained as part of a whole-genome shotgun assembly of the mouse genome. The mouse genome is about 10% smaller than the human genome, owing to a lower repetitive DNA content. Comparison of the(More)
In addition to genetic alterations, cancer cells are characterized by myriad epigenetic changes. EZH2 is a histone methyltransferase that is over-expressed and mutated in cancer. The EZH2 gain-of-function (GOF) mutations first identified in lymphomas have recently been reported in melanoma (~2%) but remain uncharacterized. We expressed multiple EZH2 GOF(More)
Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) represent a promising modality for the treatment of cancer. The therapeutic strategy is to deliver a potent drug preferentially to the tumor and not normal tissues by attaching the drug to an antibody that recognizes a tumor antigen. The selection of antigen targets is critical to enabling a therapeutic window for the ADC and(More)

PURPOSE Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and ovarian cancer each comprise heterogeneous tumors, for which current therapies have little clinical benefit. Novel therapies that target and eradicate tumor-initiating cells (TIC) are needed to significantly improve survival. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN A panel of well-annotated patient-derived xenografts (PDX) was(More)
The Cell Index Database, (CELLX) (http://cellx.sourceforge.net) provides a computational framework for integrating expression, copy number variation, mutation, compound activity, and meta data from cancer cells. CELLX provides the computational biologist a quick way to perform routine analyses as well as the means to rapidly integrate data for offline(More)
The rapid development of DNA microarray technology enables researchers to measure the expression levels of thousands of genes simultaneously and allows biologists easily gain insight into the complex interaction in tumours on gene expression levels. Its application in cancer studies has been shown great success in both diagnosis and elucidating the(More)
