OCG Templates and Protocols
The OCG Standard Operating Protocols (SOPs) and templates are guidelines for investigators participating in OCG programs such as CGCI's Burkitt Lymphoma Genome Sequencing Project (BLGSP), and HIV+ Tumor Molecular Characterization Project (HTMCP), the Human Cancer Models Initiative (HCMI), and Therapeutically Applicable Research To Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET). Investigators must follow the protocols in the SOPs when contributing samples and data. The sample and data acquisition process is explained in comprehensive detail to ensure that all materials and data will be of sufficient quality. Depending on the role in the acquisition process, only a certain number of protocols may apply to a particular investigator. Should you require any clarification, please contact the appropriate OCG personnel listed in the SOP.

HCMI Searchable Catalog
HCMI Searchable Catalog is a continuously updated resource for querying the available next-generation models developed by HCMI. Within the catalog, users can search by patient demographics, tumor, and model elements including age at diagnosis, sex, treatment information, clinical tumor diagnosis, primary site, clinical stage, and type of model (e.g. 3D-organoid, 2D-conditionally reprogrammed cells), etc. For additional assistance in navigating the searchable catalog, please see the “HCMI Searchable Catalog User Guide”.

Successful Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are written instructions for doing a specific task in a certain way (Source: NCI). The purpose of an SOP is to guide a novice to carry out a particular task in an accurate and consistent manner.
