MSigDB is a collection of annotated gene sets for use with Enrichment Analysis (GSEA) software which is a computational method that determines whether an a priori defined set of genes shows statistically significant, concordant differences between two biological states. It contains 9 major collections of the gene sets;
H: hallmark gene sets
C1: positional gene sets
C2: curated gene sets
C3: regulatory target gene sets
C4: computational gene sets
C5: ontology gene sets
C6: oncogenic signature gene sets
C7: immunologic signature gene sets
C8: cell type signature gene sets
