"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a lot of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction." – Albert EISTEIN

Tumor Map – Navigate the complex world of Genes

Tumor Map – Navigate the complex world of Genes

Tumor Map is an interactive browser that allows biologists, who may not have computational expertise, to richly explore the results of high-throughput cancer genomics experiments on thousands of patient samples.

TumorMap is a tool that enables grouping samples based on their omic signatures in a visually accessible way. Similar to dimensionality reduction methods, Tumor Map method takes a high-dimensional omics space and produces a two dimensional visualization. Unlike most dimensionality reduction methods, the TumorMap method is able to combine multiple types of omics data (e.g. mRNA expression and methylation data types in a single map). Furthermore, TumorMap is an interactive tool that allows navigating through a tumor landscape that represents a heterogeneous multi-dimensional and multi-platform omic space of oncogenic signatures.

An excellent research tool. Thanks to UCSC and the team.
