The project has four levels and areas of responsibility as outlined in Figure 1,

  1. Level I - WP1. Management is the duty of the WP1, Management office, Scientific Steering Committee, and Scientific Advisory Board.

  2. Level II - WP2, WP3, WP4. a. WP2.

    1. Identifying genetic variation related to disease, identifying SNPs for stage I and II, and develop analytical methods for studies to be performed at level 3.

    2. WP3. Being responsible for the genotyping activities of COGS.

    3. WP4. Fine scale mapping of the loci identified in stage III.

  3. Level III – WP5, WP6.

    1. WP5. Based on the genetic alterations found at level 2, estimate gene – environment interaction.

    2. WP6. Identifying individuals at risk and link genetic variation to specific tumour characteristics.

  4. Level IV – WP7. To evaluate the public, ethical, preventive, legal and social implications of the results generated at level III.
