A £10 million initiative for identifying genetic abnormalities that cause cancer is to be established in the UK. Funded by Britain's Wellcome Trust, the Cancer Genome project will use rapidly emerging data from the Human Genome Project to find gene abnormalities associated with all forms of human cancers. The new project will be led by Professor Michael Stratton and Dr Richard Wooster at the Sanger Centre in Hinxton, Cambridgeshire.
