Therapeutically Applicable Research to Generate Effective Treatments (TARGET) is the collaborative
effort of a large, diverse consortium of extramural and NCI investigators. The goal of the effort
is to accelerate molecular discoveries that drive the initiation and progression of hard-to-treat
childhood cancers and facilitate rapid translation of those findings into the clinic. TARGET projects provide comprehensive molecular characterization to determine the genetic changes
that drive the initiation and progression of childhood cancers.The dataset contains open Clinical
Supplement, Biospecimen Supplement, RNA-Seq Gene Expression Quantification, miRNA-Seq Isoform
Expression Quantification, miRNA-Seq miRNA Expression Quantification data from Genomic Data
Commons (GDC), and open data from GDC Legacy Archive.
Genomic Data Commons (GDC) is source of truth for this dataset; GDC offers monthly data releases,
although this dataset may not be updated at every release.
