The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project has launched an updated Web site that offers several new content areas and interactive features to help members of the public understand how TCGA works and what they can expect from discoveries that are made through the project.

The site includes case studies that describe how the research community is using TCGA data to make or validate new discoveries, with a video series of TCGA investigators explaining the genetic basis of cancer and the many areas of TCGA research. 

The site also includes written profiles of the researchers who work with TCGA, along with perspectives from members of the research community, research briefs on studies that used TCGA data, and regular updates from TCGA leadership. An interactive graphic on the site illustrates how TCGA works.

Readers can sign up for updates  to receive routine notices about the latest news on TCGA.
