LIMORE is an ongoing project. The website is updated frequently. Please stay tuned

Liver cancers are highly heterogeneous with poor prognosis and low drug response rate. A better understanding between genetic alterations and drug responses would facilitate precision treatment for liver cancers. To largely characterize the landscape of pharmacogenomic interactions in liver cancers, we developed Liver Cancer Model Repository (LIMORE) composed of 81 human liver cancer cell models, including 50 newly generated models.

LIMORE largely retained genomic and transcriptomic features of primary liver cancers. Interrogation of the pharmacogenomic landscape from a high-throughput drug screening discovered unexplored gene-drug associations, including novel synthetic lethal strategies to prevalent alterations, in liver cancers. Morevoer, predictive biomarkers and models were developed to facilitate the selection of sorafenib-responding patients. In total, LIMORE platform provides a rich resource of preclinical models and datasets to expand our knowledge and facilitate drug development in liver cancers.
