an online repository for molecular cytogenetic aberration data

Bioinformatics. 2001 Dec;17(12):1228-9. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/17.12.1228.


Through sequencing projects and, more recently, array-based expression analysis experiments, a wealth of genetic data has become accessible via online resources. In contrast, few of the (molecular-) cytogenetic aberration data collected in the last decades are available in a format suitable for data mining procedures. is a new online repository for previously published chromosomal aberration data, allowing the addition of band-specific information about chromosomal imbalances to oncologic data analysis efforts.
