  • Integrated genomic profiling of 218 prostate tumors provides a unique public resource
  • Androgen receptor coactivator NCOA2 is amplified in primary and metastatic disease
  • TMPRSS2-ERG positive tumors associate with 3p14 loss and its candidate target genes FOXP1, RYBP, SHQ1
  • Degree and pattern of CNAs in primary tumors is associated with risk of relapse
