CCLE WGS dataset

Monday, December 9th, 2013

This is the URL for ccle with WGS data:

They have an XML describe all the datasets and there are WGS as well. (This should be publicly available WGS.)


The Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE) project is a collaboration between the Broad Institute, the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research, and the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation. CCLE will conduct a detailed genetic and pharmacologic characterization of a large panel of human cancer models, develop an integrated computational analyses that link distinct pharmacologic vulnerabilities to genomic patterns and translate cell line
integrative genomics into cancer patient stratification. The CCLE provides public access to genomic data, analysis and visualization for about 1000 cell lines.

NOTE: these data sets do NOT require any special access or authorization status. However, you will need to use the public access token/key URL, or your secure key file that you may have downloaded for projects like TCGA that use a secure key file.
