Cancer Genomics

Visualizing and analyzing cancer genomics data in a user-friendly way.

The problem

A lot of data is generated in the space of cancer genomics, by hospitals, in clinical trials, in mouse studies, etc. This data does not always reach its full potential because it is hard to find and hard to work with. Many researchers do not have the bioinformatics skills to work with this data. For exploratory analysis and visualization, the effort of working with the data tends to outweigh the benefits of doing so.

How The Hyve can help

cBioPortal is an interactive open source platform for visualizing and analyzing genomics data in a user-friendly way. It gives researchers and clinicians insight in large scale cancer genomics data sets and helps them to develop and select better cancer treatments. By bringing data together in one platform it is much easier to find and easier to work with.

For bench scientists, cBioPortal offers an intuitive and easy-to-use interface that can answer their research questions and is great for exploratory analysis. We often give trainings to end users so they can use the platform to its full potential.

For bioinformaticians, there is a REST API that gives access to all the data that is loaded in the system. This greatly reduces the effort required for harmonizing data from different studies or trials. This allows them to run analyses across large numbers of studies or trials with little effort.


The Hyve manages the largest number of active cBioPortal installations in the world, for a wide variety of clients, including pharma companies, hospitals, research institutes, data providers and research collaborations. Our contributions to the open-source code base can be found in our articles.
