Kaplan-Meier Survival Curve Tool

Drawing Kaplan-Meier survival curve of groups from omics profiling.

This tutorial shows how to prepare for drawing Kaplan-Meier Survival Curve.

This tool has often been applied to test survival rates of treated and non-treated groups. But with Subio Platform and stored data sets, you can easily test survival rates of grouped patients by gene expression levels of a specific genes, or by methylation levels of tumor suppressor genes.

Preparation:

If you apply survival analysis based on samples which you downloaded before a certain period, we recommend you update the clinical information from GDC data site before using the tool.

Update clinical information of GDC as a preparation of Kaplan-Meier survival analysis.

The clinical information of TCGA and Target projects are continuously updated. And you would be better to update the information in your Subio Platform before you use Kaplan-Meier survival curve tool, because "time to last follow up" of "Alive" patients has an impact on the resulting survival rate and p-values. Using the latest information ensures better analysis from the statistical point of view.
