This page describes the status of the Broad GDAC standardized data runs, which aim to produce version-stamped data packages representing a frozen snapshot of all TCGA analysis data at a given time.  Our goal is that this aggregation and assignment of unique chronological identifiers:

  • Provides a consistent point of reference for citation by marker papers and users of TCGA data.
  • Provides a formal definition of what constitutes a given tumor dataset.
  • Cast it in a form amenable to immediate algorithmic analysis (no additional data preparation required).
  • Thereby minimizing redundant effort across centers and groups to download and prepare data from the DCC.
  • And fostering reproducibility.

The idea originated in this presentation from the April 2011 face-to-face meeting, and was refined in subsequent presentations on May 12th and May 19th to TCGA working groups.  The standardized data packages are available at the TCGA Data Coordination Center (DCC), and require appropriate login credentials, and accessed within your local IGV installation by following the instructions given here.
