The article offers information on the research conducted by the authors related to shared stress phenotypes among multiple cancer types, revealed by the sample-level enrichment analysis. It states that genetic diseases such as cancer are characterized by phenotypic heterogeneity reflected at the molecular level in the form of variations in the activity of certain signaling pathways.

    A mixture normal model has been developed to partition genotypes in predicting quantitative phenotypes. Its estimation and inference are performed through an EM algorithm. This approach can conduct simultaneous genotype clustering and hypothesis testing. It is a valuable method for predicting...

    To date, many genetic changes have been described and reported in the cancer process. Since the first mutations were described, several attempts to establish genotype-phenotype correlations for these genetic alterations have been reported. Moreover, in vitro data have suggested effects of mutant...
