Cancer And Related Genes Online


To start using CARGO, follow these steps:

1. search for a term (like "regulation") or gene name ("p53")- complex searches are not supported yet- to obtain a list of genes or use one of our previously compiled gene list (Sjoblom et al. Science, 2006 or Matsuoka et al. Science, 2007);

2. activate a few widgets by clicking either on their names (top left ) or in their tabs (top of the dashboard);

widget bar

3. click on one of the genes from the list and watch the information in the widgets refresh accordingly (some widgets have their own behaviour for instance: iHop and FunCUT have their own clickable bars and OMIM has a hierarchical menu). That's it!


A detailed tutorial of CARGO could be downloaded from here (PDF: 888 KB).


Currently, CARGO displays biological information only for human genes. Information for other species will be included.


CARGO works best in Firefox and other Gecko-based browsers. It works fine now in Opera and in the latest versions of Safari (3 or above).

At this point, it does not support Explorer, and Konqueror. We are working on extending support for them.

Some widgets have additional requirements, check here the full list.


CARGO displays information from different sources. We are thankful to the developers and Institutions for providing freely available services. Enter here to view our sources.
