TCGA tumor genome sequencing analyses offer new insights into the effects of HPV and smoking, and find genomic similarities with other cancers.
Researchers with the TCGA Research Network have found that stomach cancers, also called gastric cancers or gastric adenocarcinomas, fall into four distinct molecular subtypes.
The Cancer Genome Atlas researchers are mapping the genetic changes in 20 cancers. Find out which cancers have been selected for study, the criteria for selection and the scientific questions being asked about each cancer.
Explore how The Cancer Genome Atlas works, the components of the TCGA Research Network and TCGA's place in the cancer genomics field in the Program Overview.
Steps Towards Precision Medicine: Utilizing FFPE Specimens for Comprehensive Genomic Characterization
Roy W. Tarnuzzer, Ph.D., the Biospecimen Core Resource Program Manager at the TCGA Program Office, provides an overview of the Formalin-fixed Paraffin Pilot Project, an initiative to investigate best practices for use of FFPE specimens in genomic studies.
