Study Description
Study Data

The GDC requires a core set of clinical data elements for capturing demographic and diagnosis information as defined in the GDC Data Dictionary.


Treatment data refers to information on the action or administration of therapeutic agents to produce an effect that is intended to alter the course of a pathological process.


Relapse/recurrence data refers to information associated with the return of a disease after a period of remission.


Outcome data refers to information on a specific result or effect that can be measured. Examples of outcomes include decreased pain, reduced tumor size, and improvement of disease.


Molecular characterization experimental strategies refer to the assay performed (e.g. DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq) to characterize the molecular properties of the data. Select what experimental strategies were used in molecular characterizations from the pull-down list of experimental strategies supported by the GDC.

# Experimental strategy







Biospecimen data refers to information associated with the biological sample, portion, analyte, or aliquot. A set of biospecimen data elements commonly used across studies and required by the NCI GDC are defined in the GDC Data Dictionary .


Experimental metadata includes sequencing platform, library selection method, exome capture kit description, and other experiment details. Examples of fields and values for this kind of data can be found in the Sequence Read Archive Experiment Schema.


Information on the data analysis protocol includes information on the workflows used to analyze the data. This may include analysis information found in the Sequence Read Archive Analysis Schema.
