Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE)

cancer genomic life sciences


The Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia (CCLE) project is an effort to conduct a detailed genetic characterization of a large panel of human cancer cell lines. The CCLE provides public access to genomic data, visualization and analysis for over 1100 cancer cell lines. This dataset contains RNA-Seq Aligned Reads, WXS Aligned Reads, and WGS Aligned Reads data.
