Tissue collection and DNA extraction are ongoing in the Sister Study. DNA has been extracted from breast and ovarian cancer cases and a randomly selected subcohort, as well as for other projects. Tissue samples, including blocks and H&E slides, are requested for participants reporting a diagnosis of breast or ovarian cancer. The Genomics and Tissue table (link below) provides numbers for participants with tissue samples received and/or DNA extracted and analyzed in genomics projects.
