ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study regarding the software tools for widespread use. The Cancer Genome Atlas' (TCGA) proram office director Kenna Shaw states that single-nucleotide polymorphism, exome, and transcriptome wer used to explore the molecular differences. It says that the reason as to why a platform for scientists was built by Oracle to scale up genomic data analysis was to due cancer genome projects.
