Our knowledge of cancer genomics exploded in last several years, providing us with detailed knowledge of genetic alterations in almost all cancer types. Analysis of this data gave us new insights into molecular aspects of cancer, most important being the amazing diversity of molecular abnormalities in individual cancers. The most important question in cancer research today is how to classify this diversity to identify subtypes that are most relevant for treatment and outcome prediction for individual patients. The Cancer3D database at http://www.cancer3d.org gives an open and user-friendly way to analyze cancer missense mutations in the context of structures of proteins they are found in and in relation to patients' clinical data. This approach allows users to find novel candidate driver regions for specific subgroups, that often cannot be found when similar analyses are done on the whole gene level and for large, diverse cohorts. Interactive interface allows user to visualize the distribution of mutations in subgroups defined by cancer type and stage, gender and age brackets, patient's ethnicity or vice versa find dominant cancer type, gender or age groups for specific three-dimensional mutation patterns.
