Commercialising a database: Case Study

In 2013, the advancing genomic revolution was increasing the rate of cancer mutational data available. At the same time, the cancer research community needed an accurate centralised database to aggregate and interrogate relevant data. How could we organise and curate exponentially growing amounts of data and protect this valuable resource of precious data for both academia and industry?

Working closely with COSMIC, Sanger’s Enterprise & Innovation Team devised and implemented a workable solution to help commercialise the COSMIC database.

This case study describes how it was done.
