CPTAC Annual Scientific Symposium
The 2020 Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) Virtual Scientific Symposium offers attendees the opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in both the field of cancer proteogenomics and cancer research by CPTAC investigators.
The agenda includes a full day of scientific talks on tumor biology, with a session dedicated to live demonstrations of CPTAC-developed data analysis tools.
The CPTAC program, which is affiliated with the NCI Office of Cancer Clinical Proteomics Research, is a national effort to accelerate the understanding of cancer biology through the marriage of large-scale proteome and genome analysis, or proteogenomics. This comprehensive approach allows CPTAC researchers to broaden our understanding of cancer by not only distinguishing tumor types through genomics, but by also examining the downstream mechanisms of the resultant proteins and post-translational modifications.
