The Cancer Genome Atlas' 4th Scientific Symposium
May 11-12, 2015
Natcher Conference Center
National Institutes of Health
On behalf of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), we announce the 4th Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Scientific Symposium to be held May 11-12, 2015 in Bethesda, MD. The Symposium is an open scientific meeting with collaborative workshops, poster sessions, and plenary presentations in which investigators from around the world share their novel biological discoveries, analytical methods, and translational approaches using TCGA data.
By May 2015, 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 actively use 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.
