Q: Your documentation does not describe what the clinical term X.Y.Z means, where can I find this?

A: The Broad GDAC did not generate the source clinical data, so we can only tell you how we've collected, processed and analyzed it. But, in our clinical pipeline documentation there is a series of links to additional information from the NCI, including: how clinical data are harmonized at the GDC; the TCGA code tables; the BCR and Clinical data specifications, and an example questionnaire given to a tissue source site(s) from which samples were collected. If this does not help then we recommend contacting the Genomic Data Commons (as noted above), since they are the current stewards of the legacy TCGA data.
