Cancer Genome Anatomy Project

An interdisciplinary collaboration between the NCI, NCBI and research labs to identify human genes expressed in different cancerous states, based on expressed sequence tags of complementary DNA libraries, and to determine the molecular profiles of normal, precancerous and malignant cells.
