Direct submission

You can actively contribute to the development of the IARC TP53 Database by submitting data directly to us at . At the present time we only accept data that have been accepted for publication in peer-reviewed journals. Mutation must be described at the nucleotide level.

To submit data, you can either send your own electronic file or use the IARC submission form: download form and instructions (2 Excel files and 1 Word file in a compressed zip format).

The reference genomic sequence used for TP53 from R17 is NC_000017.10 (hg19).

To convert position of mutations from g. to c. or between different genome builds, we recommend to use Mutalizer.
