Cancer Genome Anatomy Project (CGAP)

The NCI's Cancer Genome Anatomy Project sought to determine the gene expression profiles of normal, precancer, and cancer cells, leading eventually to improved detection, diagnosis, and treatment for the patient. Resources generated by the CGAP initiative are available to the broad cancer community. Interconnected modules provide access to all CGAP data, bioinformatic analysis tools, and biological resources allowing the user to find "in silico" answers to biological questions in a fraction of the time it once took in the laboratory.

Read more about CGAP and access the many valuable resources.

Cancer Genome Characterization Initiative (CGCI)

The Cancer Genome Characterization (CGC) Initiative: Assessing the use of new genomics technologies to strategically characterize a subset of genomic changes involved different tumors. Groups involved with the CGCI Initiative make all of their data available through a publicly accessible database. Cancer Genome Characterization (CGC) Initiative incorporates genomic characterization methods including exome and transcriptome analysis using second generation sequencing to better understand the underlying genetic changes leading to cancer.

Read more about the CGC Initiative and how the project is enabling the next generation of discovery through rapid data release and data sharing.
