The NCI GDC Releases New Cohort Comparison Features

The NCI's Genomic Data Commons (GDC) released new features allowing users to build and compare custom cohorts and perform operations on case, gene, or mutation sets. Users are now able to use the new GDC Analysis feature to build cohorts for selected cases and compare cohorts by performing survival analysis, and comparing characteristics such as gender, vital status and age at diagnosis. Users can also perform set operations on case, gene, or mutation sets by visualizing set similarities and differences in a Venn diagram.

Additional information on custom set analysis is available in the GDC Data Portal User's Guide.
