Abstract

The Cancer Genome Anatomy Project (CGAP) is a collaborative network of cancer researchers with a common goal: to decipher the genetic changes that occur during cancer formation and progression. The project brings together several recent technologies capable of high-throughput analysis to help achieve this goal. Automated sequencing of cDNA libraries is a primary focus and is geared towards providing a comprehensive and annotated set of human and mouse transcribed sequences. This effort includes full-length transcript sequence generated by CGAP's new Mammalian Gene Collection initiative. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) within human gene sequences (Genetic Annotation Initiative) and chromosomal rearrangements within cancer cells (Cancer Chromosome Aberration Project) are also being cataloged as part of CGAP. Finally, to help determine gene expression patterns related to cancer, CGAP provides a quantitative catalog of data through its SAGEmap initiative. The genome and genetic analysis tools listed in this review are all freely distributed by CGAP (http://cgap.nci.nih.gov/) without restriction.
