Over the past dozen years, The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network has produced an incredible body of work and resources for the cancer community that will serve as a foundation for research moving forward. Our lab has played a leading role in this effort.
Twenty-nine scientific publications have been published recently to mark the "end of the beginning of cancer genomics" research. The Ding Lab was responsible for six of the twenty-nine papers, including three in the journal Cell! (See our publications page.) We wish to thank TCGA and all our collaborators for the hard work and cooperation that was required to produce this groundbreaking body of work!
