Snapshot backups of our main disk. Note that you MUST change into the .zfs directory in order to view its content. You WILL NOT be able to see .zfs from the root of /xchip/gdac_data with the expected "ls -la" Unix command. Usage can also be "monitor"-ed via the IT storage appliance GUI (contact Mike Noble for password)

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