What’s the Answer? (pre-defined gene sets)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions and issues. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those items or discussions here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

As I mentioned in last week’s tip, I was spurred to look at the cancer data at ICGC from a Biostar question.

Question: Is there any pre-defined gene sets for different cancers

Hi all,

I’m looking for the pre-defined gene sets for different type of cancers. is there any database that I can dowload this gene sets? for example gene sets for Breast Cancer.


But I thought I ought to also mention there were other options for looking for cancer gene data sets that were provided. Go have a look at the question and answers from others. But if you have other ideas please bring them over.
