Called CanPathPro, the research consortium aims to combine omics data and systems biology tools into a single commercial platform for testing cancer hypotheses.

The group will offer free access to omic and clinical data from the project and develop software to help clinicians use the models in patient care.

The partners have planned a three-year pilot and selected three NCI projects to benefit from supercomputers and expertise offered by four DOE labs.
