International Cancer Genome Consortium version 28 (for hg19 and hg38) are available in ANNOVAR now. The ANNOVAR annotation databases are being moved to a new hosting server. We plan to still keep the old S3-based server as a CDN for Asia and Middle East to improve download speed; you can explicitly specify www2 (instead of default www) in the -downdb command line. The Clinvar 20210123 version is available in ANNOVAR in hg19/hg38 coordinates (file updated 20210204).

The Genome Trax™ 2021.1 is now available. Updated tracks have been released with HGMD 2021.1 content for all HGMD-related tracks. Additional major updates include Genome Trax release 2021.1, and PROTEOME™ release 2021.1. Please refer to GeneXplain for updated release notes on Transfac™ and PROTEOME™.
