The ability to identify robust genomic signatures that predict response to immune checkpoint blockade is restricted by limited sample sizes and ungeneralizable performance across cohorts. To address these challenges, we established Cancer-Immu (http://bioinfo.vanderbilt.edu/database/Cancer-Immu/) a comprehensive platform that integrates large-scale multidimensional omics data, including genetic, bulk, and single-cell transcriptomic, proteomic, and dynamic genomic profiles, with clinical phenotypes to explore consistent and rare immunogenomic connections. Currently Cancer-Immu has incorporated data for 3,652 samples for 16 cancer types. It provides easy access to immunogenomic data and empowers researchers to translate omics datasets into biological insights and clinical applications.
