Novel catalog interface Hartwig Medical Database with whole genome sequenced tumor genomes
Hartwig Medical Foundation has presented a novel catalog interface of the Hartwig Medical Database with whole genome sequenced tumor genomes: https://catalog.hartwigmedicalfoundation.nl. The database holds currently data of more than 5,000 patients, including treatment and response data. Additionally it has RNA-sequencing data for more than half of the patients.
DThe interface is interactive and the database can be explored by flexible visualization of different data types in multiple dimensions. Filtering is possible for each data type, e.g. tumor type, biopsy location, age, gender, treatment given, treatment outcome and RNA availability.
This is the world’s largest publicly available data set in its kind and is available for free for research improving today’s and tomorrow’s cancer patient care. Hartwig Medical Foundation is very grateful that so many patients have chosen to share their data in this way for the benefit of science and other patients.

Data is generated by Hartwig Medical Foundation and collected in more than 40 Dutch hospitals with consent of patients in a variety of studies coordinated by CPCT, the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Cancer Center UMC Utrecht, Erasmus MC Oncology and Amsterdam UMC. The catalog was developed with support of KWF Dutch Cancer Society.
This unique resource grows continuously with increased adaptation of complete genome diagnostics in routine care in the Netherlands. Cancer of unknown primary is the first indication with a reimbursement title.
The interface is interactive and the database can be explored by flexible visualisation of different data types in multiple dimensions.
