The cBioPortal for Cancer Genomics provides a web-based resource for researchers to explore, visualize, analyze, and share multidimensional cancer genomics data sets. The user-friendly web interface makes visualization of gene-level data across genes, samples and data types available to users, without requiring bioinformatics expertise. Visualizations include survival analysis, networks analysis, co-expression and the onco-print. Furthermore, a study view is available, which provides summary statistics of your clinical data and allows you to create a subset of your data for further analysis.
The portal supports a variety of genomic data types, including somatic mutations, DNA copy-number alterations (CNAs), mRNA and microRNA (miRNA) expression, DNA methylation, protein abundance, and phosphoprotein abundance.
cBioPortal is used by tens of thousands of researchers and is now also supported by TraIT. The cBioPortal hosted by TraIT has access policies, meaning that as a study owner you can decide which users have access to your studies.
For further questions regarding this TraIT platform, including requests for usage, please contact the TraIT ServiceDesk.
