Good Evening,

I want to look for individual cancers and find out the somatic mutations for the genes which are affected and list them according to their occurrence.

How will I use the database ? I mean I want to rank genes for example lung cancer , for which gene X has more than 1% somatic mutation clinically tested. Then make a panel with genes to study lung cancer.

Best regards,

Benjamin Gross

Hi Prasun,

One place to start is by visiting and selecting one or more lung cancer studies and selecting the “Explore Selected Studies” button.  This will take you to the study view where you can see the mutated genes - frequency table across the cohort (see below).

I suggest you visit the “Tutorials/Webinars” page (selection at the header of all pages) to learn more about how to use the cBioPortal.
