  • TCGA data access

    I have read various posts including thsi one about TCGA-
    Discussion of next-gen sequencing related bioinformatics: resources, algorithms, open source efforts, etc

    I never had my luck in accessing the TCGA data. However I recently read one post- http://www.biostars.org/p/80764/
    which kind of support my views also. I would like to see if other members also had similar difficulties and experience with TCGA data. I at least agree with one point that in the spirit of public access mechanism of data for controlled access no one of the grp involved in generating data should be involved at least it should be and independent body regulating the access if data if access has to be controlled.

    I welcome your feedback and your thoughts.

    Hi Matthew,

    We at Station X totally feel that TCGA data needs to be more freely accessible and approachable by the research community. In that spirit, we've recently launched a free reference library of genomics data as part of GenePool that is anchored by TCGA RNA-Seq data and it's metadata has been curated and linked to each of the samples. I trust you'll find that GenePool is making it easy to work with large cohorts of genomics data, including the TCGA cohorts.

    For more information about GenePool's growing library of genomics data, check out the following threads:

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
