    CanSAR

    $$$$
    Posted at Newscientistdotcom 11/14/13...cancer info megadatabase...and it's free!!

    "The online resource, called CanSAR, was developed by a team at the Institute of Cancer Research in London, and contains 1.7 billion experimental results relating to genes, clinical trials and pharmacological data.

    The idea is to provide a free computerised system that can analyse the huge amounts of data accumulated over the past decade on cancer, in order to provide leads for genes or drug targets to pursue for future treatments.

    For example, CanSAR summarises what is known about any gene of interest, including which drugs react with it and whether it is active in healthy tissue. A prototype evaluated 479 cancer-associated genes, and picked out 46 leads, many not previously considered as targets for therapy."
