This document describes a plan for usage of the "Reserva Técnica para Infraestrutura Institucional de Pesquisa" granted by FAPESP. CIPE-AC Camargo Cancer Center (Center for International Research) is a building dedicated to scientific research, and houses laboratories, administrative sectors and support teams. The IT infrastructure, consisting of network folders, email, backup, and information systems, is a key resource for CIPE operations. Over the next five years, a huge amount of genome sequence data, proteomes and exomes will be generated by institutional and thematic projects to find molecular changes that may be therapeutic targets in cancer. In addition, projects focused on identification of therapeutic response, prognostic factors and disease recurrence biomarkers will be developed and will generate a huge demand for data processing and storage. Also in 2015 will be implemented a scientific database policy, requiring deposit of clinical and molecular database for all students in our graduate program. We propose expanding the data backup infrastructure, to keep safe the clinical and genomic data produced at A. C. Camargo Cancer Center. (AU)
