Content: Overview


The majority of models within the Cancer Dependency Map at Sanger have undergone extensive characterisation including: sequencing, copy number, methylation, gene expression and drug screening. These large scale genomic and functional datasets can be explored using dedicated resources such as the Cell Model Passports, Project Score and GDSC. Processed downloads are available here and via the DepMap API. Links to repositories holding raw data are provided in the Cell Model Passports and within each dataset's documentation page.
