WASHINGTON, D.C.—The TCGA Network, part of The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) project of the National Cancer Institute and National Human Genome Research Institute, announced April 1 that it has selected more than 6,000 gene and microRNA (miRNA) targets for sequencing that represent both protein-coding genes and microRNAs.

According to TCGA leaders, while this list is not exhaustive, it "represents genes and sequences with a potential for being associated with human cancers based on published and unpublished research."

Current and future argets for TCGA genomic sequencing studies consist of genes and candidate regions selected through the combination of two different approaches. In one approach, genes of interest—tumor repressors or oncogenes, for example—are identified from the scientific literature and by consultation with experts in the field. The second approach, genes and genomic regions are identified by analyses of the data produced by the TCGA Cancer Genome Characterization Centers.
