BROWSE AND QUERY CCLE AND TCGA PROGRAMMATICALLY

We support browsing and querying the CCLE dataset programmatically on the CGC. Use the Datasets API to issue queries sent as API requests in JSON. Or, use the SPARQL query language to issue queries to the SPARQL endpoint: https://opensparql.sbgenomics.com/blazegraph/namespace/tcga_metadata_kb/sparql.

Additionally, the Datasets API’s GET request for an entity’s schema now returns a list of possible values for the properties of that entity. We’ve also introduced an optional fields key to expose metadata fields in the response. Note that the “fields” key doesn’t act as a filter.

After obtaining your query results, you can access data filtered using SPARQL or filtered using the Datasets API with the CGC API

Learn more about the Datasets API and the SPARQL endpoint on our Knowledge Center.
