Intended Audience

This workshop is intended for cancer researchers and bioinformaticians who are interested in using the NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC) and supporting tools to download and retrieve data from cancer genomics studies.

Abstract

The Querying and Downloading Data using the GDC Data Portal and the GDC Data Transfer Tool workshop will help introduce users to the GDC tools for downloading and retrieving data from cancer genomic studies. As an example, we will query and download open access data using the GDC Data Portal and the high performance GDC Data Transfer Tool. We will also review the process for obtaining access to controlled data and demonstrate how to generate a token for downloading controlled access data.
