Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Amin et al. characterize the molecular landscape of canine gliomas and compare it with that of human pediatric and adult gliomas, revealing high similarity between human pediatric and canine gliomas. The cross-species analysis identifies conserved glioma drivers and aneuploidy as a hallmark of high-grade disease.
