Welcome to LuGenD, Lung Cancer Gene Database. Lung Cancer is the second most common cancer among both men and women and the leading cause of cancer death in both sexes. LuGenD is a curated and integrated web-based database for genes and genomic loci of human Lung cancer genes.

To identify Lung cancer causing gene becomes more and more important today. If genes had been identified early, molecular biologist would have had sufficient time to detect and treat them. Currently, there is just a few specialized public databases are available storing the data of gene and its expression while they are needed as a resource for the field. Moreover, there is a need to develop and assess computational tools to compare and analyze in a suitable way for biological interpretation. Here we describe our recent work on developing a database on Lung cancer gene, and setting up for the analyzing a large-scale cancer registry for lung cancer, that would contribute to basic and clinical research in the future. Molecular biologist need sophisticated analytical tools or database which often demand extensive computational resources. This database LuGenD covers genes involved in a number of molecular and genetic events of the Lung cancer including the chromosomal location, mutations and expression, as published in the literature.

There are a total of 75 unique entries in this database. Users can either browse or query the gene through a web interface. For each gene, in addition to basic gene information and rich cross-references to other databases such as SWISSPROT, EntrezGene, EMBL etc., and relevant literature references are provided to support the inclusion of the gene in the database. The detail expression of each gene data are also presented using UniGene Cluster database.
