The NCI Genomic Data Commons' (GDC's) upcoming webinar will introduce new users to its portal and library of computational resources. GDC experts will also answer questions about the GDC and genomic analyses and also share upcoming features of the system. As a component within NCI’s Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC), the GDC is a knowledge system for cancer that facilitates precision oncology and helps researchers share and access genomic, clinical, and biospecimen data.  

During the webinar, GDC expert Dr. Bill Wysocki will review GDC’s:

  • data access tools,
  • Data Analysis, Visualization, and Exploration (DAVE) tools,
  • data submission process and tools,
  • bioinformatics pipelines, and
  • upcoming features and changes.
