MSigDB needs your support! Many of you take advantage of the Hallmark collection of MSigDB to aid your interpretation of GSEA results. We are now preparing a research proposal to obtain funding to expand and enhance the collection. Our goal is to develop a new approach that will better elucidate and annotate component processes, thereby generating more coherent, accurate gene sets.

So, once again we ask for your help by sending us a short email telling us how you use MSigDB in your work, especially if you have found the Hallmarks collection useful. Please send your emails to on or before Friday September 28, 2018.

Systematic name M13643
Brief description A series of molecular signals initiated by the binding of an extracellular ligand to the receptor Notch on the surface of a target cell, and ending with regulation of a downstream cellular process, e.g. transcription.
