Medical Xpress: New database to ‘SpUR’ on cancer research

Medical Xpress: New database to ‘SpUR’ on cancer research. “The new resource, named SpUR (short for Splicing in Untranslated Regions) and freely available online, details more than 1,000 splicing events found frequently in cancers in noncoding regions of mRNA located just downstream of protein-coding stop signals. The sites and expression levels of these events are cataloged and visualized for nearly 8,000 samples across 10 cancer types and corresponding normal tissues. With the tool, independent research teams can now further probe the role of individual splice events in cancer development and progression.”
