Location: Web Conference (See WebEx information below)
Dr. Bill Wysocki, Director of User Services, University of Chicago (UChicago)

This webinar describes the GDC’s approach for ensuring high quality genomic and clinical data is maintained at the GDC. Experts describe the GDC’s data life cycle, data quality strategies, data quality submission and harmonization tools, and data quality metrics.

Intended Audience

This webinar is intended for cancer researchers and data submitters who are interested in learning more about GDC data quality strategies, tools, and metrics.


The GDC provides the cancer research community with a unified repository and cancer knowledge base that enables data sharing across cancer genomic studies in support of precision medicine. As a data sharing knowledge base, ensuring access to high quality data is imperative. This requires a strategy that employs data quality measures in all aspects of the GDC data life cycle from data submission through harmonization (standardizing data and metadata, aligning data to a common reference genome, and generating higher level data). This webinar will provide an overview of the GDC data quality strategy, tools facilitating data quality in GDC data submission and harmonization, and data quality metrics generated by the GDC.

Included Topics
  • Provide an overview of the GDC Data Life Cycle
  • Review the GDC Data Quality Strategy
  • Discuss GDC Data Quality Submission and Harmonization Tools
  • Review GDC Data Quality Metrics
