Changing Landscape of the Cancer Genome
Organizer(s): Lynda Chin, Christoph Lengauer and Michael StrattonDate: June 20 - 25, 2011
Location: Boston Park Plaza, Boston, MA, USA
Large scale cancer-genomics across the globe are capturing increasingly detailed views of the cancer genomes. These data have the potential to transform every aspect of cancer research. The challenges now are to decipher what the genomic landscape is teaching us about the initiation, progression and clinical behavior of a tumor. The goals of this meeting are (1) to bring together the data producers and analysts to share their latest findings, both technical and biological, from large-scale cancer genomic projects and address the challenges in analyses of these complex cancer genomic data; (2) to highlight how these genomic data are enabling a system/network-view of the genome and how the patterns of mutations are teaching new insight into underlying etiologies; and (3) to explore how cancer genomics can impact on drug discovery and development.
