The TRIC refers to "tRNA in cancers". Transfer RNAs (tRNAs) play essential roles in tumorigenesis. The database tRNA in Cancer (TRIC) show the dynamic landscape of tRNAs expression across 31 cancer types and more than 10000 samples from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Here we systematically analyzed tRNA expression profiles at gene, codon and amino acid levels and the functional consequence (e.g. patient tumor stage, subtype, and survival). We also try to connect the differentially expression of tRNA and the translational control in tumor.

Users Can:

Analyze the tRNA related clinically relevant events.
Comparative analyze the expression and expression alteration at tRNA, codon and amino acid levels.
Analyze codon usage among whole genome.
Download all expression data to independently validate a pattern of interest.
