Europe PMC, an archive of life sciences journal literature, has added links to COSMIC enabling easier access to cancer mutation data.
COSMIC v89 (May 2019) has just been released! In this release we have 4 newly expert-curated genes: DDX3X, LATS1, PIK3CB and NCOR2; and a significant update to bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma).
As part of release v89 we have focused on updating the expert-curated mutation data for bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma). Approximately 60 additional publications that include mutation screening data in this disease are included in the release.
We are pleased to announce a major expansion of the mutational signatures, based on the analysis of 84,729,690 somatic mutations from 4,645 whole cancer genome and 19,184 exome sequences encompassing most cancer types.
The COSMIC v88 release is now live! We have 4 newly expert-curated genes: PTPRT, MAP3K1, LEF1 and LATS2; and a significant update to TSC1 and TSC2.
As part of release v88 we have focused on updating the expert-curated mutation data for TSC1 and TSC2 genes. This includes approximately 60 additional publications that include mutation screening data for these genes.
COSMIC will be presenting at the American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019 later this month.
The next COSMIC release is on its way. Traditionally we always have a February release, however, as this one will be such a major release we are delaying it so that we can complete extra testing and make sure we don’t compromise with the quality of data.
Let us teach you about COSMIC! We are planning a series of Workshops this year, the first two will be in Cambridge, then we are looking to head further afield.
