In an initial data-mining effort, the draft human genome was searched to find paralogs of known tumor suppressor genes, and for gene arrangements, which are typical of oncogenes, in cancer cells. The results were disappointing, indicating that although knowledge of the human genome will undoubtedly be of great help, other approaches to identify new oncogenes are needed.
