Cell line annotations are useful on mutation tables

Dear DepMap team,
Cell line names on the DepMap portal need an improvement, CCLE id used to be on these tables, which included the tissue id, e.g. NCIH128_LUNG. This was very useful to quickly filter tables based on the cancer type for example, while searching through mutations or fusions, we can no longer do that on the portal as far as I’ve seen (screenshot below has all the available columns on the table). It would be great, if some columns of the cell line annotations is added to these tables; CCLE id, lineage or primary disease could be useful. Thanks!

Ah, yes, that is a good idea!

We moved away from CCLE names last year but it did have the side effect of hiding the cancer type on tables such as this. I’ll add this suggestion to our internal issue tracker.
