The Progenetix database and cancer genomic information resource was publicly launched in 2001, abnnounced through an article in Bioinformatics. The resource currently contains genome profiles of more than 100’000 individual cancer genome screening experiments. The genomic profiling data was derived from genomic arrays and chromosomal Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) experiments as well as Whole Genome or Whole Exome Sequencing (WGS, WES) studies. Genomic profiles are either processed from various raw data formats or are extracted from published experimental results.

Access, Maintenance and Contributions

The content of the progenetix resource is freely accessible for research and commercial purposes, with attribution.

The database & software are developed by the group of Michael Baudis at the University of Zurich and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics [(SIB)]http://sib.swiss/baudis-michael/”.

Many previous members and external collaborators have contributed to data content and resource features. Participation (features, data, comments) by volunteers are welcome.

While we try to respond to emails in a timely manner, for requests regarding interface improvements, new use case scenarios or bug reporting we recommend to use the Github issue trackers of the progenetix-web web frontend.
