Champions Oncology is illuminating the cellular dynamics of cancer by providing a tool to accelerate biomarker discovery for all researchers in both academia and industry. Champions was founded on the premise that our PDX (patient derived xenograft) models recapitulate actual patient responses. Our own proprietary PDX bank data, in conjunction with public data sets (i.e. TCGA, CPTAC, GEO), are incorporated into our bioinformatics platform, Lumin.
We recently added Lumin Workspaces to our existing suite of Lumin Bioinformatics products. Building upon our Lumin Bioinformatics platform, Lumin Workspaces allows users to use custom code in any programming language (i.e. R, Python, Julia) within Jupyter notebooks to interrogate and analyze Champions’ bioinformatics datasets (RNA-seq, WES, proteomics, TGI, clinical data) and public access datasets (TCGA, CPTAC) in a secure, collaborative environment.
