Atlas Chromosomes in Cancer

URL:www.infobiogen.fr/services/chromcancer/index.html
  • Thorough approach
  • Haphazard in places
The Atlas Chromosomes in Cancer site is an online journal with a number of strengths. They include a focus on genes, cytogenetics, and cancer-prone diseases. Information is organized a bit haphazardly. On the plus side is access provided via clicking on a chromosome number. Other options include categories of genes, leukemias, solid tumors, and cancer-prone diseases. The site contains numerous informative case reports, which come about as close to traditional journal articles as anything on the site. I was disappointed to have to search around to find basic site info, and the totally vanilla opening page leaves something to be desired. But despite these shortcomings, many will find items of interest, here.
