MEMo (Mutual Exclusivity Modules) allows to search and test for mutual exclusive and functionally related genomic alterations in cancer. A complete description on how to use MEMo can be found here.

OncoSign (Oncogenic Signatures) is a network modularity based approach to hierarchically cluster sparse binary data. OncoSign has been previously used to identify tissue-independent tumor classes characterized by specific combination, or signatures, of selected functional events.
