This page is the graveyard of content from the GDAC "Internal" page that is no longer relevant, because it applied mainly to the Legacy TCGA phase of our GDAC. It's being kept here, rather than thrown away, just in case. To lessen confusion, our aim is that no content be duplicated, i.e. each piece of content on the Internal page will either (a) remain there or (b) be moved here.

Important Directories


Root directory of our legacy TCGA mirroring tree (DCC is no longer active).

.../platform_link/other/gdacs/gdacbroadLocation to which our FH results are mirrored: corresponds to this URL at DCC

Top level of tree which contains static-ish "reference data" for FH tasks: manually curated, or culled from external sources, but NOT fed from GDAC ingestor OR generated at runtime by GDAC FH tasks at. Some examples of the kinds of data we store in the reference tree are:

    • antibody names for RPPA annotations
    • clinical parameters per TCGA disease type
    • custom inputs for aggregation into Analyses workflow (& correlation to clinical parameters)
