Import of COSMIC Release v90 is not supported

Issue description

The Track importer for the COSMIC variation database does not support the import of COSMIC Release v90 due to issues with that version. From QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench 20.0.4 and QIAGEN CLC Genomics Server 20.0.4, import of COSMIC version 91 is supported. Import of versions earlier than v90 is also supported.

From version 91, COSV IDs are used instead of COSM, with each COSV ID imported as a single variant with information from all relevant transcripts and samples. Further details are available in the CLC Genomics Workbench manual.


To use COSMIC data with the CLC Genomics Workbench or CLC Genomics Server, please upgrade your software to a version that supports version 91 (or later), or download and import an earlier version than version 90 of the COSMIC database.
