Cancer Gene Trust

The Cancer Gene Trust is an online network for sharing somatic cancer genomic and clinical data from around the world, making the data accessible for research use in real time.

About this Project

The Cancer Gene Trust (CGT) is a system designed to liberate clinical tumor data, especially molecular data, from medical institutions and other organizations worldwide and make it accessible for research use in real time. It will allow clinicians, researchers, and others to search cancer sequencing data and some clinical data in a secure, publicly open and available setting, to identify similar cases from around the world.

    This document describes the Cancer Gene Trust, a somatic cancer data sharing Demonstration Project developed in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health. We encourage members of the GA4GH and cancer research communities to send us feedback on the white paper and to participate in the CGT.
