Pan-Cancer Initiative

As The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) research papers were published on individual cancers - glioblastoma, breast, ovarian and others - and genomic data started to accumulate, investigators began noticing similarities across cancers, patterns in the chaos. The Pan-Cancer initiative, launched in 2012 as a next logical step in TCGA studies, allows scientists to find a new way to pool all of this information and see commonalities among disease types.
