Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Researchers develop new database of druggable fusion targets

(Bar-Ilan University) By analyzing over a million nucleic acid sequences from publicly available data, a team of researchers has identified 111,582 fusions in eight species (human, mouse, rat, fruit-fly, wild boar, zebrafish, yeast and cattle). The latest and most up-to-date version of their database, known as ChiTaRS, will be extremely useful to clinicians specializing in complex diseases, particularly, cancers, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia and many others.
