This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see GeoTcgaData.

Processing Various Types of Data on GEO and TCGA

Bioconductor version: 3.17

Gene Expression Omnibus(GEO) and The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) provide us with a wealth of data, such as RNA-seq, DNA Methylation, SNP and Copy number variation data. It's easy to download data from TCGA using the gdc tool, but processing these data into a format suitable for bioinformatics analysis requires more work. This R package was developed to handle these data.
