M. D. Anderson team chosen to help navigate Cancer Genome Atlas

rching it for the desired information, Weinstein explained. A semantic web structure allows searches based on a subject-predicate-object format that can home more directly to the information sought, dramatically speeding up searches. With an appropriate graphics card, more data crunching can be done in the browser of the user's laptop, rather than in a distant server. That also speeds processing time and relieves pressure on the server.

Team member David Kane of SRA International, a longtime collaborator of Weinstein's, is an expert in the Agile software development paradigm. Traditional software development involves extensive planning and consultation with users before any code is written. "The central tenet of agile development is that you get something working quickly via close consultation between biologists and software engineers. The biologists then are the initial testers and users, and the software is grown organically. The initial investment is small, so you don't have to be afraid of changing direction if necessary," Weinstein said.

Kane used the agile approach to develop the Miner Suite of bioinformatics software with Weinstein at the National Cancer Institute. Weinstein worked at the NCI for more than 30 years, and directed what has been considered a precursor project to the Cancer Genome Atlas before coming to M. D. Anderson in January 2008. Advances based on the Miner Suite will be used in this project.

The TCGA grant application was Weinstein's first to his former employer.

Findings and tools generated by the project will be open source, available to other TCGA research teams, and in a format compatible with both The Cancer Genome Atlas and the NCI's Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG).

Weinstein has done a series of calculations to put the challenge of sorting out the many variables of the cancer genome in perspective. "If you unpacked the DNA in every cell of a single person and stretched it end
