The latest NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC) monthly webinar explores its data sets and how to access them.

  • Provide an overview of the programs and projects that provide data to the GDC, including The Cancer Genome Atlas and other landmark projects
  • Review GDC data types available in the GDC
  • Demonstrate how to access the different types of data from supported programs in the GDC
