The Atlas of Genetics and Cytogenetics in Oncology and Haematology, created in 1997 by Jean-Loup Huret (with bioinformatics by Philippe Dessen) is a collection of resources on genes, chromosomes anomalies, leukemias, solid tumours, and cancer-prone diseases. The project is accessible through Internet and is made of encyclopedic-style files, as well as traditional overviews, links towards websites and databases devoted to cancer and/or genetics, case reports in haematology. It also encompasses teaching items in various languages.[1]

The Atlas is part of the genome project and participates in research on cancer epidemiology. It is written and used by practicians, researchers and teachers in genetics, haematology and pathology. The Atlas is also used by students and the general public.[2]

The Atlas is financially supported by many organizations, including the Ligue Nationale contre le Cancer, the National Cancer Institute, the European Regional Development Fund or the Ministry of Research and Ministry of National Education in France.
