Educating for Best Practices in Clinical Cancer Genetics

The Cancer Genomics Consortium (CGC) was formed in August 2009 by a group of clinical cytogeneticists, molecular geneticists,
and molecular pathologists, who are interested in education and promoting best practices in clinical cancer genomics.

The CCGA is a global collaborative effort to describe clinical context-based knowledge for gene- and chromosome-level abnormalities observed in cancer, featuring:

  • Publicly available online resource
  • Includes data visualizations and connections to other germane genetic resources
  • Provides genetic evidence correlated to diseases in the WHO Classification of Tumours (WCT) books
  • Wiki-based platform, supporting immediate updating of genetic evidence by expert volunteers to parallel the rapidly evolving literature
  • Direct links to CCGA pages are being added to the online version of the WCT
