United States - Ovarian Cancer | International Cancer Genome Consortium

United States - Ovarian Cancer | International Cancer Genome Consortium

Project Summary
The National Cancer Institute and the National Human Genome Research Institute launched The Cancer Genome Atlas program to create a comprehensive atlas of the genomic changes involved in more than 20 common types of cancer. This large-scale, high-throughput effort is being carried out by a network of more than 100 researchers at many organizations across the Unitred States. The overarching goal of TCGA is to further scientific understanding of the genomic changes in cancer, thereby improving the ability to diagnose, treat and prevent this devastating disease. All data generated by the TCGA research network are made rapidly available to the research community through the TCGA Data Portal.
