Our web developers have been updating the COSMIC website in order to modernise and improve the look and feel of the site. We have also been working to improve the usability of some of our key pages, adding new functionality and making layouts hopefully more intuitive and user-friendly.
In collaboration with Open Targets, COSMIC now has hallmark information incorporated into 116 of the most important genes in the Cancer Gene Census. This is based on the defining work by D. Hanahan and R. A. Weinberg published in Cell in 2000.
A set of filtered COSMIC datasets are now available. These can be downloaded directly from the COSMIC beta site in CSV format. This can be done through the downloads page, avoiding the SFTP server, more details here.
The COSMIC team will be running an ‘Introduction to COSMIC Workshop’ on Monday 6th of March, at the Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK. More details here.
