The Cancer Genome Atlas project generated genomic, imaging and clinical data from thousands cancer patients. The Cancer Genomics Cloud project (ISB-CGC) aims at democratizing access to these data by providing a computational infrastructure based on the Google Cloud Platform, application programming interfaces and client-side software packages to interact with them.
The ISB-CGC team, together with Bio-IT, will offer a comprehensive overview of how to use the Google Cloud Platform to process and analyse cancer data. The course will be structured into four 1.5 hours-long sessions, with the following programme:
Day 1 – 21 June 2022, 14:00 – 15:30
Intro to the National Cancer Institute NCI data
Generalized intro to good clinical practices in cancer-related studies
Day 2 – 22 June 2022, 14:00 – 15:30
Introduction to SQL and R
Exploration of NCI datasets
Summary of days 1 and 2
Day 3 – 23 June 2022, 16:00 – 17:30
Large scale correlations in SQL
Day 4 – 24 June 2022, 14:00 – 15:30
Differential expression analysis
Summary of days 3 and 4
Please note that Day 3 has a different time schedule.
The ISB-CGC team, together with Bio-IT, will provide an overview of the large scale data analysis capabilities of the platform. They will show how to query the data, fetch pre-processed data and run pan-cancer analyses within the R environment.
