Retrieving or utilizing TCGA results need not be difficult, especially for open-access data. To help simplify, we're currently beta-testing the firehose_get retrieval script. To join our beta effort, simply download the zip file from here, perform these 2 steps from a Unix-compatible command line
unix% unzip firehose_get.zip
and follow the instructions (excerpted below). Please note that downloading data from our site constitutes agreement to this data usage policy. If you are missing
wget, please please look here for links to pre-built versions for your system.
