GDC Workshop: Navigating the GDC - A Case Study

The Navigating the GDC - A Case Study workshop is the first workshop in a series of NCI GDC Workshops. This workshop will help introduce users to the different GDC tools and data types that are available to support cancer genomic analysis. As an example, we will identify common p53 mutations in colon cancer in the GDC cBioPortal, verify mutation calls using BAM slicing in the GDC Data Portal, and investigate the impact of mutations on RNA-Seq expression. In the process we will also highlight the GDC Data Transfer Tool, harmonized clinical data, and the GDC API.
