The MSigDB Cancer Neighborhood1 ontology contains gene sets from mining large collections of cancer-oriented microarray data. Each gene set is defined by correlated expression with one of 380 cancer-associated genes2 .


The human ontology contains 427 gene sets, 4,717 genes, and 41,713 associations.

The ontology is not available for mouse.


All data for this ontology was downloaded on March 11, 2009 (MSigDB version 2.5).
