Release notes

Import Files from the PDC

We have implemented an additional file import system that allows you to import proteomic data into your projects using manifest files generated on the Proteomic Data Commons (PDC) Data Portal. The process consists of two stages:

  • generating a manifest file for the selected data on the PDC Data Portal; and

  • importing the selected data into a project on the CGC, with the help of the generated manifest file.

The process currently works with CPTAC3 data only, as indicated in our documentation

We have also made PDC CPTAC3 metadata available on the CGC, as a single JSON file available in the Public Files gallery. For more details on how to find the file and use the metadata, please read our short tutorial.

About the PDC

The Proteomic Data Commons (PDC) is a node in the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC) ecosystem that represents a pilot project aiming to democratize access to cancer-related proteomic datasets as well as to provide sustainable computational support to the cancer research community. The PDC Data Portal provides a platform for efficiently querying, visualizing and downloading high quality, curated and harmonized proteomic datasets.
