To celebrate the release of COSMIC v99, we delve into how focusing on expert manual curation of specific genes, resistance mutations & more, emulates our dedication to being a reliable, sustainable source of genomic data on somatic mutations in cancer
To celebrate COSMIC v98’s release, we took inspiration from our curation team’s aim to improve representation of the plethora of rare subtypes of skin cancer and bring you three things you may not know about skin cancer!
The COSMIC team is delighted to welcome our new director Jon Teague!
Join us and Dr Gianmarco Contino MD PhD, associate Professor of Cancer Genomic Medicine and an Honorary Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery Consultant as we explore his broad range of work from gene panels and tumour boards, to his clinical specialty: Oesophageal cancer.
We caught up with Dr. Guannan Wang to explore how her team’s first-of-its-kind canine precision oncology database could affect cancer research and patient outcomes for canines and humans alike.
Dr Carla Daniela Robles-Espinoza delves into her research on the genetic causes of acral lentiginous melanoma. Explore the role COSMIC played and how studies like this could help to close the care gap for lesser researched diseases.
Have a read of the joint blog article put together by Helen Speedy from COSMIC and Denise Carvalho-Silva from Open Targets looking at the cancer gene census.
As we mentioned at the last release, as part of integrating the Hallmarks of Cancer feature, the Cancer Gene Census (CGC) has had a thorough re-evaluation.
