Cancer Genome Characterization Centers (U24): The NCI is soliciting applications from investigators interested in participating in a collaborative network of Cancer Genome Characterization Centers (CGCCs) to be established under this funding opportunity. This request for applications (RFA) is a component of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Pilot Project recently announced by the NCI and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) (, a comprehensive and coordinated effort to accelerate our understanding of the molecular basis of cancer through the application of high throughput genome analysis technologies that interrogate the entire genomes of human cancer biospecimens. The CGCCs, Genome Sequencing Centers, and other components (see below) of the TCGA will work together in a collaborative Research Network. The overall goal of the TCGA pilot effort is to assess technical feasibility and clinical relevance in conducting a comprehensive analysis of the genomic alterations found in human cancers.
