The Cancer Genome Anatomy Project CGAP generates gene expression, polymorphism and chromosomal aberration datasets to support the elucidation of the molecular signatures of cancer. To facilitate use of CGAP data by the biomedical research community, the project has developed a suite of analytical tools designed to facilitate in silico analysis.
