GENEVESTIGATOR: Pig & cancer data

  • Sus scrofa (pig) has been added as new organism

A first set of 26 experiments (744 samples) from the Affymetrix Porcine Genome Array (SS_24K ) was manually curated and is now available. The experiments cover mainly the following fields: - Cardiovascular (heart failure, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, ischemia, ...) - Diet/obesity - Infection (Salmonella) More experiments will be added in the coming days.

  • Cancer data 

All GENEVESTIGATOR cancer data were re-classified according to ICD-10 and ICD-O-3 (info) and new clinical parameters were added. These changes significantly improve the exploration of the over 1,500 cancer samples in GENEVESTIGATOR.

Human data: Over 640 new samples have been released (e.g. diabetes, inflammation, blood tissue)!
