CGAP -- Cancer Genome Anatomy Project

What you can do:
Find the information and technological tools needed to decipher the molecular anatomy of the cancer cell from a annotated index of the genes that are important in cancer.
Highlights:
  • The goal of the NCI's Cancer Genome Anatomy Project is to determine the gene expression profiles of normal, precancer, and cancer cells, leading eventually to improved detection, diagnosis, and treatment for the patient.
  • CGAP offers technological, informational (data and analysis tools), resource (clones and libraries) and methodological infrastructure for the cancer research community.
  • The current CGAP program has expanded to include in addition to the Tumor Gene Index (TGI), a Genetic Annotation Initiative (GAI) and the Cancer Chromosome Aberration Project (cCAP).
  • The TGI and GAI are focused towards building a catalog of annotated genes.
