Keep up with the latest news from the NCI Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) and the data science communities.

In the latest episode of the Center for Cancer Genomics (CCG) podcast, “Personal Genomics,” CCG honors the work and legacy of Dr. Daniela S. Gerhard. Dr. Gerhard was a program director and passionate open data advocate who spent nearly two decades developing large-scale genomics and translational research programs at NCI.

NCI is looking for cancer researchers, who need access to comparative oncology data sets, to give feedback on the Integrated Canine Data Commons (ICDC) data portal and its tools.

In RAS-related diseases, such as cancer, mutations in the RAS genes or their regulators render RAS proteins persistently active. Investigating RAS activation events is challenging when using conventional techniques. An unprecedented multiscale platform is using machine learning to change that.
