Description

Cancer Gene Modules classes for the genes included in FIN.data. Annotations are taken from the GSEA MSigDB (Molecular Signatures Database) public repository:

http://www.broadinstitute.org/gsea/msigdb

The annotations are available in MSigDB C4 (computational gene sets collections) CM (cancer modules), file: c4.cgn.v3.0.symbols.gmt . This collection of gene sets is taken from a work published by Segal and colleagues aimed at the definition of a Cancer Modules Maps. According to the definition of the authors Cancer Gene Modules are groups of genes that act in concert to carry out a biological function/process. Cancer Gene Modules have been used to describe expression profiles in different tumors types in terms of the behavior of modules. Further information about specific modules can be found at: http://robotics.stanford.edu/~erans/cancer/browse_by_modules.html It is worth noting that the Cancer Gene Modules annotations contained in bionetdata covers only the 2033 genes included in FIN.data.
