From: Distinguishing potential bacteria-tumor associations from contamination in a secondary data analysis of public cancer genome sequence data

Cancer type Abbreviation Sequencing type1
Acute myeloid leukemia AML RNA-Seq (192)
Breast cancer BRCA RNA-Seq (451)
Glioblastoma multiforme GBM RNA-Seq (1), DNA (10), WGA (147)
Kidney clear cell carcinoma KIRC RNA-Seq (420)
Kidney papillary carcinoma KIRP RNA-Seq (15)
Lung adenocarcinoma LUAD RNA-Seq (76)
Lung squamous cell carcinoma LUSC RNA-Seq (174)
Ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma OV WGA (310), DNA (13)
Stomach adenocarcinoma STAD RNA-Seq (71)
  1. 1 As denoted by the TCGA barcode, the sequencing types are RNA-Seq, DNA, or whole genome amplified (WGA). The number of samples analyzed for each sequencing type is denoted in the parentheses and is not the number of samples where bacterial read pairs were identified
