Glioma Cellular Genetics Resource

Funded by Cancer Research UK, the Glioma Cellular Genetics Resource is a collection cellular models and associated data to underpin the next era of studies into the biology and treatment of glioma.

It is an open access initiative led from Edinburgh that provides:

  • New patient-derived glioma cell lines (early passage, cryopreserved)
  • Normal neural stem cell reference controls
  • Extensive molecular annotation (genome, epigenome, transcriptome)
  • Matched GFP-Luciferase cells and xenograft data
  • Isogenic matched cell line pairs with gain or loss of glioma drivers
  • CRISPR engineered knock-in lineage reporters and epitope tags
