Abstract :

Cancer is one of the most common causes of death all over the world. According to the World Health Organization, it causes about 12.5% (or 12.5 out of every 100) of all deaths worldwide. It is caused due to the mutations in the human DNA over a period of time which results in an abnormal growth of cells. There is a need to design a database with the description of specific cancer features which helps the medical users and researchers for the better understanding of the cancer mechanism to provide better diagnostics and treatment. Our study aims at the development of a cancer specific database i.e. CancerBase which provides information on Next Generation Sequencing SRA information and mutations causing cancer and the pathways involved.
