PCAWG - Illuminating the Dark Matter of the Cancer Genome

When and Where

Date: Friday, April 13, 2018 - Friday, April 13, 2018 (1 day)
Price: Free Location:

More than 700 scientists came together in 2015 to form the Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes (PCAWG) project, which analyzed the tumour and healthy tissues of more than 2,800 whole genomes across 39 distinct tumour types – a massive and unprecedented effort toward systematically understanding cancer biology. Now members of the worldwide research project are ready to share the results, which include important new discoveries about how cancer develops and what mysteries remain.

Be one of the first to hear about these discoveries at Illuminating the Dark Matter of the Cancer Genome: The Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes Symposium. Join international leaders from the PCAWG project, as well as the International Cancer Genome Consortium and The Cancer Genome Atlas, which together provided the whole genomes for PCAWG, as they share their results, answer questions from the research community about the findings, and discuss the project’s next steps and its potential impact on cancer genome research.
