Processing Whole Genome, Methylation, and Copy Number Data Types at the GDC

Date: Monday, June 6, 2022

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (EDT)

Location: Web Conference (See WebEx information below)


Dr. Zhenyu Zhang, Ph.D, GDC Co-Principal Investigator, University of Chicago

Bill Wysocki, Ph.D, Director of User Services, University of Chicago

Intended Audience

This webinar is intended for cancer researchers and bioinformaticians who are interested in learning more about the NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC) bioinformatics pipelines supporting data harmonization.


Researchers utilize an ever-increasing variety of molecular data types in their investigations of cancer and other complex diseases. To support the research community, the GDC processes and hosts a variety of data types, including whole genome sequencing, methylation, protein expression, copy number, and other data types. At this webinar, the GDC Bioinformatics Team will describe the pipelines supporting these data types.

Included Topics

    • An overview of WGS, methylation, copy number, protein expression (RPPA), and other data types available at the GDC and how these data types are processed
    • A description of the GDC’s WGS mutation and copy number variant calling pipelines
    • Demonstrate how to locate and download these data types from the GDC
