Curated Data From The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) as MultiAssayExperiment Objects

Bioconductor version: 3.10

This package provides publicly available data from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) as MultiAssayExperiment objects. MultiAssayExperiment integrates multiple assays (e.g., RNA-seq, copy number, mutation, microRNA, protein, and others) with clinical / pathological data. It also links assay barcodes with patient identifiers, enabling harmonized subsetting of rows (features) and columns (patients / samples) across the entire multi-'omics experiment.
