Cancer Genomics Cloud Pilots

CBIIT, in collaboration with the Center for Cancer Genomics, is coordinating a program to develop three Cancer Genomics Cloud Pilots to help meet the research community’s needs to access and analyze high quality, large-scale cancer genomic data and associated clinical information. The goal of this effort is to develop an innovative, cost-effective model for computational analysis of biological data and provide broader yet secure access to genomic data that NCI generates. Cloud computing will be a valuable tool to support studies related to the mechanisms of cancer. This capability will be equally valuable to other NCI scientific areas, including clinical trials and other types of patient-focused research.

NCIP Hub

The National Cancer Institute has launched the NCIP Hub to help accelerate innovation in the cancer research community. It is an environment for scientific collaboration where researchers can access a variety of resources shared by other cancer researchers. The NCIP Hub is intended to support a community of members with a shared goal of democratizing access to data, tools, and standards across the cancer research community. Content contributions come from community members and can include seminar presentations, publications, training materials, data, tools, and bookmarks to useful sites and information, as well as discussions on them. Join the NCIP Hub  and  get started.

NCI Biomedical Informatics Blog
The Oncology Models Forum

December 02, 2014 - My previous post highlighted how the imaging community is leveraging NCIP Hub’s capabilities to run its image analysis needs and to collaborate on tool development.  This post discusses how the NCI plans to use NCIP Hub to address the need for robust, reliable translational use of mouse and human-in-mouse models. The NCI established the Mouse …

NCIP Hub: Addressing Imaging Community Needs

August 19, 2014 - In his earlier post, Ishwar Chandramouliswaran introduced the objectives of the NCIP Hub, an online resource for research and collaboration in cancer informatics. As a scientific repository, the NCIP Hub can store community-generated data, tools, and other resources. Members can upload tools, conduct analyses, and collaborate, giving researchers the opportunity to engage with and leverage …
