The International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) is one of the most ambitious biomedical research efforts since the Human Genome Project. The project will map the genetic faults in 50 of the most important cancer types. All the information from the 25,000 cancer samples studied will be made freely available to cancer researchers around the world. The project will also ensure that the data gathered is complete, standardised and accessible, so that it can be used to its fullest potential.
The International Cancer Genome Consortium Accelerating Research in Genomic Oncology (ICGC ARGO) aims to uniformly analyze specimens from 100,000 donors with high quality clinical data in order to address outstanding questions that are vital to the quest to defeat cancer.
