Center for Cancer Genomics (CCG)
Launch the Genomic Data Commons
Access and contribute cancer genomics datasets and associated clinical data.
The National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Center for Cancer Genomics (CCG) unifies NCI's activities in cancer genomics by aiming to synthesize research in different fields of cancer genomics – structural, functional, and computational – to improve patient outcomes. CCG programs and collaborations generate cancer genomic and clinical data and make these data available for widespread use by the research community.
CCG studies cancer through structural, functional, and computational genomics, and promotes data sharing. The Genome Characterization Pipeline transforms tissue samples into rich, publicly available data that fuel innovation by the research community.
NCI’s Genomic Data Commons (GDC) is a unified cancer genomics knowledge base that promotes sharing of genomic and clinical data between researchers and facilitates precision medicine in oncology.
Read interviews with investigators, updates from CCG's Director and others, CCG's latest news and announcements, and overviews of new influential papers in cancer genomics.
The Center for Cancer Genomics uses cancer genomic techniques such as next-generation sequencing to better diagnose and treat cancer patients. The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) and the Office of Cancer Genomics (OCG) are both part of CCG.
