A lot of the work of our lab involves accessing, wrangling, and re-distributing public data resources. Here are a few resources that may be good to know about.
- HMP: Tips from the Huttenhower lab on making use of data from the Human Microbiome Project
- BiocInterfaces: tools by Marcel Ramos to help interface TCGA data with Bioconductor. Useful little utility functions like a TCGA barcode translator.
- TCGACodeTables: A fork of TCGA barcode tables, which are no longer available from the decomissioned TCGA data portal.
- ExperimentHub: A system for distributing experimental data through Bioconductor.
