Pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most lethal human malignancies and a major health problem. Patient-derived tumor xenografts (PDTXs) have been increasingly used as a prime approach for preclinical studies despite being insufficiently characterized as a model of the human disease and its diversity. Extensive multiomics characterization of these PDTXs have demonstrated their utility as a suitable model for preclinical studies, representing the diversity of the primary cancers. We performed a multi-factorial integrative analysis of genome-wide ChIP-seq on multiple histone modifications, as well as RNA-seq on subcutaneous PDTXs from 24 PDAC samples obtained either surgically or using diagnostic biopsies (endoscopic ultrasound guided fine needle aspirate). In the dataset, ChIP-seq for five distinct histone marks (H3K4me1, H3K27ac, H3K4me3, H3K27me3, and H3K9me3) and RNA-seq was carried out to generate new knowledge on the epigenetic landscapes underlying the heterogeneity of PDAC tissues grown in this manner.
