Welcome to the National Cancer Institute's Center for Bioinformatics (NCICB) Open Source Project Site.

This web site, enabled by GForge, is the primary site for collaborative project development for the NCI Center for Bioinformatics (NCICB) and for the NCI's Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid™ (caBIG™).
  • The NCICB plays a lead role in bioinformatics and information technology by building many types of tools and resources that enable information to be shared along the continuum from the scientific bench to the clinical bedside and back.
  • caBIG™ is the cornerstone of NCI's biomedical informatics efforts to work together, leveraging valuable resources to transform cancer research into a more collaborative, efficient, and effective endeavor.
  • NCI's collaborative development is based on standard software practices stemming from the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and incorporating Object Management Group's (OMG) Model Driven Architecture (MDA). More information about NCI's software development methodology, policies and procedures can be found on the Software Configuration Management (SCM) Initiative project page.

Getting Started:

Note: Access to all project pages is open, but some of the project sites' features require an account. From all GForge tabs, you can apply for a GForge account: click the New Account link in the upper right corner; or, if you have an account, proceed directly to login: Click Login in the upper right-hand corner.
  • Home Page - This tab is where you land! From this page, you can navigate to any displayed GForge link, to external hypertext links, or to any other visible GForge tabs.
  • My Page - This tab serves as your login page once you have a GForge account and facilitates navigation to projects you have joined.
  • Project Tree - This tab includes links to all NCICB and caBIG project pages where you will find additional information. Once you have a GForge account, you can navigate to any visible project in GForge and request to join that project. The project pages provide tools to help project teams collaborate through access to meeting notes, draft and release documentation, bug and feature tracking, release plans, design documents, news, forums, CVS, and product Wikis.

Announcing the caBIG Archive Project
    Doug Kanoza - 2008-04-30 12:31   -   caBIG Archive
In order to clean up and consolidate legacy repositories (pre-GForge CVS modules in /share/content/cabig/cvsroot), we have created this project to hold all legacy repositories that have not been accessed in two years and are not already associated to an active GForge project. If you need access to a module here, please send a request to NCICB Application Support ( for assistance.
