Today is World Cancer Day and the 16th anniversary of the COSMIC database. Today we thought we would share our stories. Describe what the different members of the team do day to day and and the motivations behind our work.
There has been recent media coverage, including this Guardian article, about breast implant-associated cancer. The COSMIC Curation team have been hard at work looking into the various aspects of this disease and curating papers for the v91 release in March.
Thanks to everyone who completed the COSMIC annual survey last year. We are now ready to announce the winner of the prize draw.
The v90 fasta files (both GRCh37 and GRCh38) were produced containing the cDNA sequence instead of the CDS sequence. This has now been corrected and the file has been updated to contain the CDS sequence.
As part of ongoing improvements and fine tuning of the v90 release, we are pleased to announce that genomic mutation identifiers (COSV) are now searchable on the website.
COSMIC version 90 is here. This is a special release for COSMIC because we have focused on updating and upgrading the architecture and systems behind COSMIC, substantially updating and standardising our variant content across current sets of genes, transcripts & proteins.
The v90 release is almost here. We are currently completing final preparations and tests. We have now prepared files that contain a sample of the complete dataset for each of the COSMIC download files.
Please complete the COSMIC annual survey and go in the draw for a £50 amazon voucher and provide us with important feedback.
From gene discovery, to database, to cancer treatment. COSMIC celebrates 15 years of fuelling cancer research. New article featuring COSMIC on the Sanger Institute blog. By Ali Cranage, Science Writer at the Wellcome Sanger Institute.
We are excited to announce the DFCI/BCH/BWH COSMIC Workshop on September 20, 2019! This workshop, in conjunction with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI), is designed to bring together the clinicians and researchers at DFCI, Boston Children's Hospital (BCH) and Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), with members of the COSMIC Team to review the valuable COSMIC resource.
