Tissue Overview Page

  • Welcome to the tissue overview page. This page provides an overview of all the information, stored in COSMIC, associated with the selected tissues/histologies.
     
  • This page is divided into three main sections:
     
Top Genes with Sample Data
  • This section provides an interactive bar chart showing data for the highest rated genes containing samples from the chosen tissues/histologies.
     

  • The coloured bars represent:
    • Samples with mutations
    • All samples
  • Clicking on any portion of the bar or name associated with a particular gene will reveal a pop-up menu.

    • Sample Number: (count) - This indicates the number of samples that have been found with the selected tissue/histology type
    • Mutated Samples: (count) - This is the number of the above samples that have shown mutations.
    • Go to Full Gene Display - Clicking on this link will take you to the histogram display for the selected gene.
  • Below the bar chart image is a table that displays all the information found in the image, in a tabular format.

Other Genes with Mutations
  • This section contains a list of additional genes with mutated samples that didn't make it into the top 5. Each gene name is linked to the full histogram image.
Other Genes without Mutations
  • This section contains a list of additional genes without mutated samples that didn't make it into the top 5. Each gene name is linked to the full histogram image.
Selection Progress
  • The selection progress display indicates the stage at which you are currently located. The highlighted box (surrounded by a red border) is your current position. It is intended as a guide and as such is not used for navigation directly.
