1. What does Pancreatic Cancer Database contain?
 
The Pancreatic Cancer Database is a resource of manually curated molecular alterations associated with pancreatic cancer from research articles. It currently contains information pertaining to changes at the mRNA, protein and miRNA levels. The data can be queried or browsed at mRNA, protein or miRNA levels or based on specific subtypes. Individual entries are also linked toEntrez Gene, OMIM, Human Protein Reference Database (HPRD), HGNC and miRBase. We plan to include genome sequence, copy number and RNA-seq data in the future. All the curated data have been reviewed by biologists at the Institute of Bioinformatics, Bangalore, India.
2. How can I ensure that the data in a paper that I have published is included in this database?
 
You can click the "Submit new articles" tab under "Publications" section and provide the details of your paper. Our team will curate and review the data for inclusion in PCD.
3. What if the journal in which my paper has been published is not yet indexed in PubMed?
 
Any publications that are peer-reviewed will be considered for inclusion in PCD. Please submit your article as a pdf file to us at pcd at ibioinformatics dot org.
4. How can I cite the URL for PCD?
 
For now, please cite the URL for PCD (http://www.pancreaticcancerdatabase.org) until it is published in a peer-reviewed journal.
5. Who do I contact if I see an error?
"Comments" section at the bottom of every detailed molecular page can be clicked to submit your specific comments on the corresponding molecule. Please submit any general comments by submitting them through the web form under the "Feedback" tab.
