Cancer Genome Anatomy Project (CGAP)/Cancer Genome Characterization Initiative (CGCI)
CGAP is an online tool that provides a wide range of genomics data on cancerous cells to researchers. CGCI takes advantage of specialized genomics techniques to characterize changes associated with various cancers. Learn more about the benefits of CGAP and CGCI to cancer researchers.
Cancer Target Discovery and Development (CTD²) Network
The CTD² Network is comprised of researchers using complementary techniques to identify the genetic features of cancers that can be used as potential drug targets. Learn more about the CTD² Network.
Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET)
The TARGET Initiative seeks to harness the power of modern genomics technologies to rapidly identify valid therapeutic targets in childhood cancers so that new, more effective treatments can be developed. Learn how TARGET is helping to reduce the burden of cancer for children and their families.
Cancer Genetic Markers of Susceptibility (CGEMS)
CGEMS is an NCI enterprise initiative dedicated to conducting genome-wide association studies to identify the genes that affect a person's risk of developing cancer. Learn about the impact of CGEMS on prostate, breast, and other types of cancer.
The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA)
TCGA is a collaborative effort between the NCI and the NHGRI to accelerate understanding of the genetics of adult cancers using innovative genome analysis techniques. Learn how TCGA efforts are fostering groundbreaking research.
Initiative for Chemical Genetics (ICG)
The ICG works to advance development of new cancer therapies by using small molecules to establish new screening tools and compounds. Learn how the ICG uses synthetic chemistry to improve anti-cancer strategies.
NIH Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC)
The MGC generated full-length clones for each of the mouse and human genes and the constructs are now available to the greater research community for expression of proteins for large-scale proteomic analyses. Learn about how the MGC infrastructure is being applied to other gene collection projects.
