The Cancer Genome Atlas Second Annual Scientific Symposium: 
Enabling Cancer Research Through TCGA

A researcher and a DNA helix

On November 27-28, 2012, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) held its second annual scientific symposium at The Crystal Gateway Marriott in Crystal City, Va. Through collaborative workshops, poster sessions and plenary presentations, TCGA investigators from around the world shared their novel biological discoveries, analytical methods and translational approaches using TCGA data.

By November 2012, TCGA will have released data for more than 6000 cases of human cancer, with each case having mRNA/miRNA expression, copy number, promoter methylation, and mutation analysis datasets accessible. New data types, including protein array data have also become available.
