Strategy to find molecular signatures in a small series of rare cancers: validation for radiation-induced breast and thyroid tumors.

Methods of classification using transcriptome analysis for case-by-case tumor diagnosis could be limited by tumor heterogeneity and masked information in the gene expression profiles, especially as the number of tumors is small. We propose a new strategy, EMts_2PCA, based on: 1) The identification o...
