Abstract: Cancer GEnome Mine is a public database for storing clinical information about tumor samples and microarray data, with emphasis on array comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) and data mining of gene copy number changes. CanGEM supports the MIAME standard and in addition, stores clinical information using standardized controlled vocabularies whenever possible. Microarray probes are re-annotated with their physical coordinates in the human genome and aCGH data is analyzed to yield gene-specific copy numbers. Users can build custom datasets by querying for specific clinical sample characteristics or copy number changes of individual genes. Aberration frequencies can be calculated for these datasets, and the data can be visualized on the human genome map with gene annotations. Furthermore, the original data files are available for more detailed analysis. [Information of the supplier, modified]
