I am doing a short project looking into the causes of misregulation of gene expression in cancer. I would like to compare epigenomic datasets with microarray expression datasets to see how much epigenetic dysregulation contributes to dysregulation of expression.
The problem is, I can't find a cancer dataset that contains both whole genome epigenetic data AND microarray expression data.
Does anybody have any ideas as to where I could find such a dataset, or how to go about looking?
(I'm aware it's only possible to get a subset of the epigenetic marks - I'd even settle for only methylation! :-)
I don't think anybody does microarrays any more. You probably want RNASeq data instead.
Good point, thanks. It's more finding the epigenomics data which is giving me trouble. I wonder if people simply aren't doing whole genomes.
