Mitelman Database of Chromosome Aberrations and Gene Fusions in Cancer

The information in the Mitelman Database of Chromosome Aberrations and Gene Fusions in Cancer relates cytogenetic changes and their genomic consequences, in particular gene fusions, to tumor characteristics, based either on individual cases or associations. All the data have been manually culled from the literature by Felix Mitelman in collaboration with Bertil Johansson and Fredrik Mertens.

The Mitelman Database is supported by National Cancer Institute, the Swedish Cancer Society and the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation. The database is updated quarterly in January, April, July, and October.
