GDC Bioinformatics Pipelines

Date: Monday, September 30, 2019
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Web Conference (See WebEx information below)
Dr. Zhenyu Zhang, GDC Co-Principal Investigator, University of Chicago (UChicago)
Colin Reid, GDC User Services, University of Chicago (UChicago)

This monthly support webinar helps all types of researchers utilize the cancer genomics data and resources available at NCI’s Genomic Data Commons (GDC). GDC experts will demonstrate how to find and access genomic data, how to use web-based tools, give in-depth explanations of bioinformatics pipelines, and more.

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.


The GDC bioinformatics pipelines support the alignment of DNA and RNA sequence data against a common reference genome build, and the generation of derived data. GDC pipelines are implemented using data processing software and algorithms selected in consultation with the expert genomics community. This webinar will provide an overview of GDC bioinformatics pipelines and demonstrate how generated data is made available through GDC analysis tools.

Included Topics
  • Review the GDC DNA-Seq pipelines for alignment and somatic variant calling
  • Review the GDC RNA-Seq alignment and expression workflows
  • Demonstrate analysis of data generated by GDC pipelines
