Sanger_B37 and Sanger_B38

In order to improve their utility, the Sanger Cancer Genome Project has embarked on a systematic characterization of the genetics and genomics of large numbers of cancer cell lines.

Key Views

Gene Expression

One of the most common ways to visualize gene expression data is a per-sample Scatter plot (Expression View), with each sample grouped by Primary Site on the Y-axis, and expression level plotted on the X-axis:


Expression profile of BRAF.

Mutation Site Distribution

Exome Sequencing mutation data can be queried and grouped by metadata columns. For example, it is clear from this graph that BRAF is highly mutated in skin cancers:

Note: in this view, all alleles will be plotted in separate charts (arrow indicates there are 62 alleles of BRAF found in this land). The mutation distribution view will show a summary of ALL mutations in the gene(s) queried.
