Genomic mapping has driven the classification of glioblastoma into distinct molecular subclasses, but mechanisms that regulate tumor subclass phenotypes are only now emerging. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Lu et al. describe a phenotypic switch from PDGFRA-enriched "proneural" to EGFR-enriched "classical" features in glioblastoma upon ablation of Olig2.
