BioMuta and BioXpress: mutation and expression knowledgebases for cancer biomarker discovery

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5753215
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx907

[…] f included variants, the workflow of manual curation requiring agreement by two independent curators creates an inherent tradeoff between quality and database growth rate potential (). Our databases, BioMuta (,) and BioXpress (), differ from previous attempts at cataloging disease-associated mutation and expression primarily through the aggregation of data across many studies into a single source […]


Self regulation of functional pathways by motifs inside the disordered tails of beta catenin

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5009561
PMID: 27585692
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-2825-9

[…] utation analysis: Amino acid substitutions in human beta-Catenin were retrieved from UniprotKB, COSMIC (Catalogue of Somatic Mutation in Cancer) [], DMDM (Domain Mapping of Disease Mutations) [], and BioMuta [] databases. These four databases have 20, 278, 20, and 138 mutations, respectively. Both of the UniProtKB and DMDM databases contain one unique mutation that is not found in other databases. […]


Intrinsic protein disorder in histone lysine methylation

Biol Direct
PMCID: 4928265
PMID: 27356874
DOI: 10.1186/s13062-016-0129-2

[…] e by reading the evidence references of the interaction hits found in the BioGrid database []. Cancer-related single nucleotide polymorphisms in the long conserved IDR regions were collected from the BioMuta v2.0 [] and COSMIC databases []. Long conserved disordered binding regions were calculated in two steps: first, we predicted longer (min. 8 residues) disordered binding regions by ANCHOR []. N […]


Human germline and pan cancer variomes and their distinct functional profiles

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4191387
PMID: 25232094
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gku772

[…] BioMuta () is a curated cancer-centric variation and disease association database in which variations are mapped to the genome/protein/gene. Cancer and somatic mutation data is automatically collected […]
