Turning of COGS moves forward findings for hormonally mediated cancers

Nature Genetics volume 45, pages 345348 (2013) | Download Citation

Abstract

The large-scale Collaborative Oncological Gene-environment Study (COGS) presents new findings that further characterize the genetic bases of breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. We summarize and provide insights into this collection of papers from COGS and discuss the implications of the results and future directions for such efforts.
