Welcome to the Atlas 2.0

Dear readers,

In recent years, the important advances in Cancer Genetics have significantly changed our previous knowledge in the field. Nevertheless, these “old” methodologies are still being used on the bedside.

During all this time, a great and multidisciplinary team has been working to combine the new methodologies and advances with the previous content already compiled in the Atlas, which is already a standard tool for all of us, having become like an “old friend” for many. In this new version that we are launching, you will find most of the classical contents and an array of new genetic data related with cancer.

Our idea is to keep this tool dynamic, comprehensive and closely related to a quickly changing reality. Therefore, we have modified its structure to easily get adapted to new needs. In the next months, we expect to incorporate several new chapters, for which we will need your strong cooperation, fresh ideas, and important contributions. The Atlas is now Our Atlas, an open tool where everybody is invited and welcome to collaborate.

With that in mind, some contents may need to be updated or renewed in the short term, so we invite you to inform us of any mistake you can detect. Your feedback is the only way for us to move forward. In the next weeks, we are implementing a social forum, that will be available in different languages. We sincerely hope that it will serve as a great tool to further interconnect everyone in the genetics community in cancer.

Lastly, we would like to express that we have a permanent debt with JL Huret, the father of the Atlas, who has always been a source of inspiration and we are sure will continue to be in the future.

We look forward to closely working with you on a better version of The Atlas, Our Atlas.
