The Cancer Genome Atlas First Annual Scientific Symposium

DNA double-helix and two researchersIn November 2011, The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network held its first open scientific symposium in Washington, D.C. TCGA researchers and outside investigators from around the world presented results on the use of TCGA data to make biological discoveries about cancer. The two-day meeting included lectures, collaborative workshops and poster sessions. The lectures are made freely available here and on NHGRI's YouTube channel, GenomeTV.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), two of the National Institutes of Health's 27 institutes and centers, jointly fund TCGA to use genome analysis technologies, including large-scale genome sequencing, to accelerate the understanding of the molecular basis of cancer.
 

Available in the table below are videos and accompanying slides from the symposium.
Also available as a video playlist on GenomeTV
