The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute has released version 48 of COSMIC, the Catalogue of Somatic Mutations in Cancer, available here. The new release contains the majority of curated p53 mutations, curated mutations for the TET2 and SETD2 genes, 10 new fusion gene pairs, and two new systematic screens. The system has also been updated to provide genomic coordinates on both NCBI36 and the later GRCh37 genome builds. COSMIC now includes 2,760,220 experiments, 541,928 tumors, 23,907 unique mutations, 18,490 genes, 4,946 fusions, 2,306 structural variants, and 28 whole cancer genomes.
