Cell line name conflicts

In the sample info in DEMETER2 Data v6, there is a cell line called SW527 which is labeled as breast cancer, but in the sample info in the DepMap public Q3, there is another cell line called SW527_LARGE_INTESTINE, are they different cell lines but with the name short name?

No, these two lines are actually the same, and the public Q3 data reflects our current knowledge about the annotations of all lines.

Looking at our records appears at some point we reclassified this line noting “SW480 derivative, match (STR and SNP); Originally thought to originate from a 70 year old female patient with a metastatic breast carcinoma.”
