Interactive Venn diagram for genes expressed in germ cells and cancer

As a supplement to the article “Massive expression of germ cell specific genes is a hallmark of cancer and a potential target for novel treatment development”, Bruggeman et al. developed a web-based application. The aim of this study was to identify potential therapeutic targets in cancer therapy using a bioinformatic approach. This application can be used to adapt the inclusion criteria used to identify potential candidate genes (in red), and visualize how these candidate genes compare to other studies (in blue).
