What is Cancer Genome Atlas ?

Cancer genome atlas is a very important project aiming to map all genomic variations associated with different cancers and create a comprehensive atlas. This was initiated by The National Cancer Institute (USA)and the National Human Genome Research Institute (USA) and is being carried out by a network of more than 100 researchers at many
 organizations across the Unitred States. The expected benefits of this cancer genome atlas are: 

  • better understanding  understanding of the cancers, 
  • improved  diagnostic methods,
  • better  treatment and prevention methods 
for  this devastating disease. All data generated by the cancer genome atlas programme are made rapidly available to the research community through the   cancer genome atlas  Data Portal. Click on the link below to visit the Cancer Genome Atlas Website.
