About This Project

Zoo animals get cancer just like humans do, but little is known about causes and effective treatments. In response, we have curated the largest manually entered database in the world evaluating cancer in zoo species, but it needs to be more automated to continue to grow. Additionally, we are starting a biobank to store tumors from these animals, many of whom are endangered, to provide researchers with the materials they need to improve survival for all walks of life.
