Table 1 Overview of cancer cohorts used in the study

From: MethCORR infers gene expression from DNA methylation and allows molecular analysis of ten common cancer types using fresh-frozen and formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tumor samples

  1. The number of samples with matched RNA sequencing and 450K DNA methylation for each cancer type is given. The number of MethCORR genes for each cancer reflects the number of genes with R2 > 0.16 between observed and inferred RNA expression (iRNA) in both the discovery and the validation set, as previously defined for colorectal cancer [12]
