The NCI GDC Releases New Slide Image Viewer

The NCI's Genomic Data Commons (GDC) released a new slide image viewing feature in the GDC Data Portal allowing researchers to view, zoom, and pan slide images associated with a case directly through the browser. Researchers can apply case filters to perform range searches for images by percent tumor cells and other criteria. In addition, slide images can also be downloaded in the original format (SVS) and are accessible via the GDC API.

Additional information on the slide image viewer is available in the GDC Data Portal User's Guide.
