Genomic Data Commons (GDC) Data Transfer Tool (DTT)
The NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC) contains raw sequence data that are stored as BAM files. Most files are 50 MB – 40 GB in size, although whole genome files can be up to 200–300 GB. To aid in transferring data to and from the GDC, NCI offers the GDC Data Transfer Tool (DTT), a command-line driven application. With the DTT, users can move data all at once or, if the initial transfer is interrupted, they may resume transferring at a later time. In this webinar, hosted by NCI’s Center for Cancer Genomics (CCG), GDC Technical Project Manager Sharon Gaheen gives an overview of the DTT, demonstrates file download, and reviews the use of the DTT for data submission.
Ms. Sharon Gaheen is a technical project manager for Leidos Biomedical Research, Inc. and is the Leidos project manager for GDC. Ms. Gaheen has provided management support on a variety of biomedical informatics projects supporting nanotechnology, translational research, genomics/proteomics, biomedical imaging, clinical protocol analysis, and clinical guidelines development.
