In the NewsCBIIT, NCI, and Colleagues Set New Bioinformatic Benchmarks for Genetic Variants in Two Distinct Cell Lines Linked to Breast CancerStaff from CBIIT and NCI, alongside partners from NIH, FDA, and a consortium of scientists from across the world, joined forces to create reference samples and data call sets to help the cancer community further decipher cancer-related gene mutations. Their findings were recently published in Nature Biotechnology.Staff from the National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) provide scientific and business-related reading recommendations they have found to be inspiring or useful throughout their careers.
