Fasta files updated

15 Jan 2020

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. You can download the updated file from the downloads page. Please note that you will need to be registered and signed in to your account in order to download it.

There has been some discussion about whether it would be useful to provide two versions of the fasta files in the future, one with the CDS and one with the cDNA for both GRCh37 and GRCh38. We are keen to hear your thoughts on this, so please get in touch at cosmic@sanger.ac.uk.
