The Cancer Genome Atlas' 3rd Annual Scientific Symposium
May 12-13, 2014
Natcher Conference Center

Bethesda, MD

Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), we announce the 3rd Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Scientific Symposium to be held May 12-13, 2014 in Bethesda, MD. This will be an open scientific meeting with collaborative workshops, poster sessions, and plenary presentations where investigators from around the world will share their novel biological discoveries, analytical methods, and translational approaches using TCGA data.

By May 2014, TCGA will have accrued more than 10,000 cases of human cancer for over 25 different cancer types. Datasets including exome sequence, miRNA/RNA sequence, methylation, and mutation analyses for each case are publically accessible via the TCGA Data Portal and UCSC Cancer Genomics Hub. In addition, results from cancer-specific multi-platform analyses as well as cross-cancer analyses have been published by the TCGA Network and collaborators as marker papers (see TCGA Publications website and Nature’s TCGA Pan-Cancer Focus).

TCGA is a true community resource. For the program to achieve its overarching goals to stimulate basic cancer and genomic research and enable translational cancer science, we invite all investigators who are actively using TCGA datasets in their research, or who wish to begin using TCGA data, to participate in this exciting TCGA-focused scientific symposium.

We look forward to seeing you in May.

Best regards,
The TCGA Project Team
