Processing Whole Genome, Methylation, and Copy Number Data Types at the GDC

June 06, 2022 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET

Are you a cancer researcher or bioinformatician wanting to learn more about how the experts at NCI’s Genomic Data Commons (GDC) process a variety of molecular data types? This month’s GDC support webinar is for you!

University of Chicago’s Dr. Zhenyu Zhang and Dr. Bill Wysocki will describe the bioinformatics pipelines for a medley of data types. Users can even learn about information stored in surprising places!

During the webinar, the GDC bioinformatics team will:

  • provide an overview of whole genome sequencing (WGS), methylation, copy number, protein expression (RPPA), and other data types available at the GDC and how they are processed.
  • describe the GDC’s WGS mutation and copy number variant calling pipelines.
  • demonstrate how to locate and download these data types from the GDC.

As part of the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC), the GDC provides the cancer research community with data and tools to access, analyze, and share valuable genomic data.

Zhenyu Zhang, Ph.D.

Dr. Zhang is the GDC co-principal investigator at the University of Chicago.

Bill Wysocki, Ph.D.

Dr. Wysocki is the director of User Services and Outreach for the GDC at the University of Chicago.
