    Cancer Genomics Research Laboratory



    Welcome to the Cancer Genomics Research Laboratory (CGR) website! Formerly known as the Core Genotyping Facility (CGF), this laboratory is responsible for genomics research in support of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics of the National Cancer Institute. CGR investigates the contribution of germline genetic variation to cancer susceptibility and outcomes through the use of cutting-edge genomics technologies for genotyping and sequencing.


About the Laboratory

With remarkable advances in genomic technologies, the National Cancer Institute established the Cancer Genomics Research Laboratory (CGR) to investigate the contribution of germline genetic variation to cancer susceptibility and outcomes. Working in concert with epidemiologists, biostatisticians and basic research scientists in the intramural research program, the CGR has developed the capacity to conduct genome-wide association studies and next-generation sequencing to identify the heritable determinants of various forms of cancer.
