BGI and START initiate collaboration to advance unique San Antonio 1000 Cancer Genome Project
Date:9/12/2013

Cambridge, MA, San Antonio, TX and Shenzhen, China, September 12, 2013BGI Tech Solutions Co., LTD, (BGI Tech), a subsidiary of BGI, the world's largest genomics research organization, and South Texas Accelerated Research Therapeutics (START), announced today that they are collaborating on the San Antonio 1000 Cancer Genome Project, a groundbreaking cancer genome study designed to link genetic alterations that underlie different cancers to detailed clinical outcomes. Such findings could enable scientists to pursue the development of targeted, personalized cancer treatments. All data generated from SA1kCGP will be made available publicly and freely to researchers and others worldwide.

The San Antonio 1000 Cancer Genome Project (SA1kCGP) is presently conducting whole genome sequencing of cancerous and normal tissue and blood samples from patients with one of 10 cancers. Under the collaboration, BGI Tech will provide next-generation high-throughput genomic sequencing to identify mutations associated with specific cancers, as well as gathering, analyzing and archiving at BGI all genetic and clinical data generated through the tumor sequencing and clinical analyses. START, which initiated SA1kCGP, will conduct patient recruitment, tumor sample acquisition, and collection of clinical patient information.

SA1kCGP is unique relative to other major cancer genome research projects, given the project's direct linkage of genomic and clinical information, including both treatment and survival data, using START's electronic medical records and proprietary Clinical Synchrony software technology, so that the relationship of genomic alterations and clinical outcome can be realized. This cannot be done with data from other major cancer genome research projects that only collect minimal clinical information, such as The Cancer Genome Atlas, a research program conducted by the National Institutes of Health at a cost to date of more than $375 million.
