Abstract: Objective · To construct a database of fusion and mutation gene annotations for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) to assist genetic testing. Methods · ALL related gene annotations were collectedmining medical literature. The web server of the database was constructed based on Express framework, a NodeJS web application framework, and MySQL as the server-side development environment. Results · A total of 246 ALL-associated fusion and mutation gene entries were collected through programmed and manual text mining, including biological characteristics, clinical characteristics, clinical directions, target drugs and chemotherapeutic drugs. A web server of the ALL related gene knowledge database was established for convenient data management. Conclusion · In addition to the basic information about ALL related or potentially related genes, the database also involves clinical information which can be a reference tool for precision medicine of ALL.
