Drowning in TGCA Data: How to Keep Your Head Above Water

Wed, May 2, 2018 5:00 PM BST


Over a decade after its initial funding, The Cancer Genome Atlas has concluded with the most comprehensive analysis of TCGA data, cataloguing DNA alterations, gene expression and epigenetic information across thousands of tumours as part of the PanCanAtlas effort. TCGA has generated vast amounts of data through the analysis of primary tumours from 33 different types of Cancer, collecting 7 different data types. Data collected through TCGA project is normalised and open source, providing information about the cancer landscape for researchers to use as a platform for further exploration. To fully benefit from these vast quantities of data, tools for easy data visualisation and analysis must be developed for use of the non-computational scientist.

Our panel of experts discuss TCGA data and the tools needed to make sense of it.
