Register for WP5 Cancer Data Support Professionals kick-off meeting

Do you work on cancer data projects? WP5 invites you to join the cancer data support professionals kick-off meeting September 6, 13 CEST, online. Led by Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences and Health-RI, the network aims to unlock the expertise in handling cancer related data.

WP2 achieves interoperability milestone

At the end of May, EOSC4Cancer achieved an important milestone: Interoperability between Federated European Genome-phenome Archive (EGA) and Cancer Core Europe validated by user group.

Leading this achievement was WP 2, led by European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). During the completion of this project, the main partner and consulting agency was the German Human Genome-Phenome Archive (GHGA), whose expertise helped to perform a better assessment of the critical points of this milestone.
The accomplishment of this milestone highlights harmonization needs for cancer datasets. This data harmonization was the main topic of the EOSC4Cancer Deliverable 2.3 Survey-based report determining annotation and harmonization needs. The survey-report highlighted the importance of common data standards, interoperbility, and addressed the challenges that come up with cancer data
