Research tools

This non-exhaustive list of freely available research tools can assist you in your research projects and help you make better-informed decisions

    ANNOVAR is a software tool to utilize up-to-date information to functionally annotate genetic variants detected from diverse genomes.
  • Bioconductor   
    Bioconductor provides tools for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data.
    The Catalogue of somatic mutations in cancer (COSMIC) is designed to store and display somatic mutation information and related details and contains information relating to human cancers.
    The Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery (DAVID) provides a comprehensive set of functional annotation tools for investigators to understand biological meaning behind large lists of genes.
  • DGIdb
    The Drug-Gene Interaction Database (DGIdb) is a tool to help search for drug-gene interactions by gene name and find genes in druggable gene categories.
  • Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA) 
    GSEA is a computational method that determines whether an a priori defined set of genes shows statistically significant, concordant differences between two biological states (e.g., phenotypes).
  • Oncomine
    The Oncomine Research Edition provides more than 700 datasets and over 85,000 samples to help improve the ease and efficiency of discovery.
  • Oncotator
    Oncotator is a web application for annotating human genomic point mutations and indels with data relevant to cancer researchers.
