caBIG (cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid) Interactive Overview

Information on the cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid 1 (caBIG) initiative is provided in the multimedia Interactive Overview below.

Please note that viewing the caBIG Interactive Overview is similar to watching a presentation - there are written slides shown on the screen as well as spoken narration expanding on the slide topics. Feel free to watch this Overview in what ever way is most comfortable or convenient - you may choose to just listen to the narration and then review the slide points, or simply listen to the narration. The Overview will start automatically once it is downloaded to your PC and opened - but you also have the option to move through the presentation in any order you choose and to pause it at any time.
