MAGI was created by the Raphael research group at Brown University.


MAGI is supported by Brown University, the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health.


MAGI uses public mutation data from The Cancer Genome Atlas's Pan-Cancer and stomach cancer projects [1-2],

the HINT, HPRD, iRefIndex, and Multinet interaction networks [3-6],

and the PFAM, SMART, and Conserved Domain protein domain databases [7-10].

MAGI also uses annotations from the Database of Curated Mutations.
