V91 Release coming soon

12 Feb 2020

There is an update to our high-quality manual curation on 4 new classic genes including the focus on testicular; other male cancers and breast implant related lymphoma.

We are also updating our ICGC dataset to v28, which includes 2 new studies: ICGC( BPLL-FR ) : B-Cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia - FR and ICGC( GACA-JP ) : Gastric Cancer - JP; with a complete re-annotation using Ensembl Variant Effect Predictor (VEP).

In response to user feedback we are providing a new mutation tracking file to map the legacy COSM/COSN IDs to the genomic ID (COSV).

We are also improving our VCF files to include normalised and non-normalised versions, both including HGVS (p. and c.) syntaxes; alongside ENST and ENSP syntaxes.

We are bringing COSMIC-3D data to be in sync with COSMIC v91, including new transcripts and annotations, with the latest UNIPROT accessions.

We are really excited about our upcoming release, if there is anything in COSMIC that would excite you, please let us know at


COSMIC, the Catalogue Of Somatic Mutations In Cancer, is the most comprehensive resource for exploring the impact of somatic mutations in human cancer. Here on our news page we aim to give you an insight into what we are doing and why. We will keep you updated with new developments and release information as well as any events we are hosting.
