Somatic Cancer

Mission Statement: The mission of the Somatic Cancer Workgroup is to facilitate the development of data curation guidelines and standards to determine the clinical actionability of somatic alterations in cancer, thereby enhancing the usability, dissemination and implementation of cancer somatic changes in the ClinGen resource & other knowledgebases including CIViC, ClinVar, and the GA4GH VICC-metaKB.

Vision Statement: The Somatic Cancer Workgroup aims to collaborate with expert groups to develop processes that support accurate determination of the clinical significance of somatic changes for use by physicians, clinical laboratories, researchers, and guideline-developing groups, to improve patient care through genomic medicine.
