PMID: 27156852
DOI: 10.1038/srep25582

[…] esis, abnormal metabolic pathways, and evading the immune system) were enriched for the GBM, OV, and LUAD data sets (). In addition, we found that many genes in the focal regions were included in the COSMIC CGC and that the numbers of genes in the CGC increased when we changed the FDC options (), suggesting that these genes might be candidate cancer driver genes for each cancer type. […]
