In order to advance our understanding of colorectal cancer (CRC) development and progression, biomedical researchers have generated large amounts of OMICS data from CRC patient samples and representative cell lines. However, these data are deposited in various repositories or in supplementary tables. A database which integrates data from heterogeneous resources and enables analysis of the multidimensional data sets, specifically pertaining to CRC is currently lacking. Here, we have developed… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

CancerLivER: a database of liver cancer gene expression resources and biomarkers
TLDR
CancerLivER is a database that maintains gene expression datasets of liver cancer along with the putative biomarkers defined for the same in the literature, which contains comprehensive information on 594 liver cancer biomarkers which include mainly 315 gene biomarkers or signatures and 178 protein- and 46 miRNA-based biomarkers.
dbDEPC 3.0: the database of differentially expressed proteins in human cancer with multi-level annotation and drug indication
TLDR
Another updated version of dbDEPC is provided, with improvement of database contents and enhanced web interface, which provides a comprehensive resource for accessing integrated and highly annotated DEPs in human cancer.
Identification of cancer risk lncRNAs and cancer risk pathways regulated by cancer risk lncRNAs based on genome sequencing data in human cancers
TLDR
In this study, the robust and effective cancer biomarkers were obtained from cancer datasets which had information of normal-tumor samples and can provide a new perspective for the further study of clinical diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
A network view of microRNA and gene interactions in different pathological stages of colon cancer
TLDR
A new strategy for integrating microRNA and gene expression profiles together with clinical information toward understanding the regulation of colon cancer is developed and it is shown that there are significant differences in network connections between miRNAs and genes in different pathological stages of Colon cancer.
TCGA-My: A Systematic Repository for Systems Biology of Malaysian Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
TCGA-My aims to offer effective and systematic omics data management, allowing it to become the main resource for Malaysian CRC research, particularly in the context of biomarker identification for precision medicine.
Locally advanced rectal cancer transcriptomic-based secretome analysis reveals novel biomarkers useful to identify patients according to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy response
TLDR
Transcriptomic-based secretome analysis was performed to select potentially secreted proteins using an in silico approach and confirmed the utility of circulating amphiregulin and cMET proteins for personalized treatment in LARC patients.
Activation of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and Altered β-Catenin Signaling in a Novel Indian Colorectal Carcinoma Cell Line
TLDR
A novel cell line is established from an Indian colorectal cancer patient and extensive molecular characterization is carried out to unravel the pathological alterations in this cell line, paving the way toward understanding the molecular differences that could define pathogenesis in cancers originating in the Indian population.
Identification of Autophagy-Associated Biomarkers and Corresponding Regulatory Factors in the Progression of Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
Interestingly, it is found that some of the RBP in the CRC, such as DDX17, SETDB1, and POLR3A, play an important regulatory role in maintaining autophagy at a basal level during growth by acting as TFs that regulate Autophagy.
Epistasis analysis of microRNAs on pathological stages in colon cancer based on an Empirical Bayesian Elastic Net method
TLDR
A set of candidate miRNAs associated with colon cancer progression that could have potential translational and therapeutic utility and a new opportunity to efficiently explore epistatic interactions among genetic and epigenetic factors that could be associated with human diseases are investigated.

NCG 4.0: the network of cancer genes in the era of massive mutational screenings of cancer genomes
TLDR
Owing to the manual revision of all information, NCG 4.0 constitutes a complete and reliable resource on human coding and non-coding genes whose deregulation drives cancer onset and/or progression.
The Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia enables predictive modeling of anticancer drug sensitivity
TLDR
The results indicate that large, annotated cell-line collections may help to enable preclinical stratification schemata for anticancer agents and the generation of genetic predictions of drug response in the preclinical setting and their incorporation into cancer clinical trial design could speed the emergence of ‘personalized’ therapeutic regimens.
Discovery and saturation analysis of cancer genes across 21 tumor types
TLDR
It is found that large-scale genomic analysis can identify nearly all known cancer genes in these cancer types and 33 genes that were not previously known to be significantly mutated in cancer, including genes related to proliferation, apoptosis, genome stability, chromatin regulation, immune evasion, RNA processing and protein homeostasis.
Annotating Cancer Variants and Anti-Cancer Therapeutics in Reactome
TLDR
Reactome describes biological pathways as chemical reactions that closely mirror the actual physical interactions that occur in the cell, and adapted the Pathway Browser to display disease variants and events in a way that allows comparison with the wild type pathway, and shows connections between perturbations in cancer and other biological pathways.
TSGene: a web resource for tumor suppressor genes
TLDR
A comprehensive literature-based database called TSGene (tumor suppressor gene database), freely available at http://bioinfo.mc.vanderbilt.edu/TSGene, to provide a comprehensive resource for further investigation of TSGs and their molecular mechanisms in cancer.
Comprehensive molecular characterization of human colon and rectal cancer
TLDR
Integrative analyses suggest new markers for aggressive colorectal carcinoma and an important role for MYC-directed transcriptional activation and repression.
COSMIC: exploring the world's knowledge of somatic mutations in human cancer
TLDR
COSMIC, the Catalogue Of Somatic Mutations In Cancer is the world's largest and most comprehensive resource for exploring the impact of somatic mutations in human cancer, describing 2 002 811 coding point mutations in over one million tumor samples and across most human genes.
A colorectal cancer classification system that associates cellular phenotype and responses to therapy
TLDR
Three subtypes have markedly better disease-free survival (DFS) after surgical resection, suggesting these patients might be spared from the adverse effects of chemotherapy when they have localized disease.
Human Protein Reference Database—2009 update
TLDR
A number of new features in HPRD are added, including PhosphoMotif Finder, which allows users to find the presence of over 320 experimentally verified phosphorylation motifs in proteins of interest, and a protein distributed annotation system—Human Proteinpedia.
Data, information, knowledge and principle: back to metabolism in KEGG
TLDR
The reaction modules, which represent chemical units of reactions, have been used to analyze design principles of metabolic networks and also to improve the definition of K numbers and associated annotations for translational bioinformatics.
