The February COSMIC release (v84) has arrived! We have been focusing on curation, with 8 new genes, 2 gene substantial updates and a new fusion pair. There have been over 300 new genomes incorporated from 11 systematic screen papers, as have the updates from the ICGC release 26.
We have new 1-click downloads for many of the COSMIC data files as well as now being able to filter by multiple categories before downloading.
We are currently planning COSMIC workshops for 2018 and would like your input on locations and topics.
Over the weekend, coincidentally on none other than World Cancer Day, COSMIC turned 14 and naturally we celebrated with cake.
An update on how you can submit data to COSMIC. COSMIC welcomes researchers submitting data to us directly either pre- or post-publication, the following article outlines how to do this.
Drug resistance is inherently complex, both in its mechanism of action and how it is measured and reported in the literature. Here, we take a look at the different types of drug resistance data in COSMIC and how it can be explored.
We have been busy making tutorial videos for the new website. At the moment we have five ready to go, have a look and see what you think.
The November release (v83) is now live! New in this release we have 3 fully curated genes: TGFBR2, ERBB4 and BCL9L; a substantial update to VHL; and the new fusion pair ETV6-ABL1. Full details here.
You still have access to GRCH37 and it is now possible to switch between GRCh37 and GRCh38 from any page within the main site.
