St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has launched a website for published research results from its partnership with Washington University in the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project (PCGP). This project aims to sequence the entire genomes of normal and cancer cells from pediatric cancer patients. By comparing differences in the DNA they want to identify genetic mistakes that can lead to cancer in children.
The website, named Explore, is easily accessible and offers detailed visualization of the data that will make it easier to obtain a good overview of all the information. Explore is also designed to make it easier to search published results from the PCGP.
The people behind the project want to accelerate discovery and hypothesis testing by expanding access to up-to-date research data, with Explore functioning as a catalyst for the future developments in this field.
