How to Navigate the CTD2 Dashboard: Access to Translational Data

December 18, 2017, by The CTD^2 Dashboard Development Team

The Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD2) initiative is a community resource project making strides in genomic research to develop effective cancer treatments. The CTD2 Dashboard enables scientists (computational and non-computational) to find data generated from multiple types of biological and analytical approaches by CTD2 Network Centers and adheres to the Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable, or FAIR principles. The CTD2 Dashboard provides access to validated data and the ability to view results assembled across multiple CTD2 Centers’ findings. It provides supporting evidence with links to data, references, and the validation strength of evidence referred to by “Tier.” Users can search and browse the Dashboard through gene-centric, compound/perturbation-centric, or disease-relevant concepts and can also read research highlights (stories).

To learn how to navigate the Dashboard and utilize Dashboard functions, see the following videos:

Understanding CTD2 Dashboard Organization and Terminology

The Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD2) initiative was established to help translate genomic research into future effective cancer treatments. The CTD2 Dashboard aims to provide easy exploration of data to a broad range of scientists. This video introduces and defines common terminology used throughout the Dashboard.
