I read the paper "Whole-exome sequencing identifies a recurrent NAB2-STAT6 fusion in solitary fibrous tumors" briefly.
After reading it, I tried to find the gene fusion in my exome sequence data with cancer patients from hospital.
But I think that it is a better strategy to identify the gene fusion case through the use of the public data that is specified in the above paper before trying to test on my own set.
So I tried to find an explanation about how to access public data in the paper to identify the gene fusion.
Finally I found the bold sentence (below).
Accession code. Sequence data used for this analysis are available at the database of Genotypes and Phenotpyes(dbGap) under accesssion. phs000568.v1.p1.
Just reading it, I think I can download data if i have permission. So I go to dbGap stite and search phs000568.v1.p1 and many results occur to me. But I don't know how to access above databases and also don't know how to download.
So Is there anyone who have experienced this before?
If so, I need your help!
Thank you for your reply.
I clicked the site and looked into what the pages contained.
It has many whole-exome sequencing data.
Is that right exome data that I am looking for?
If it's right, how to I confirm and download?
Did you apply for request through the authorized access system?
Not yet .
I think that it is out of my ability.
I have read the whole context about the authorized access system, I am figuring out that it's a task which a professor or dean of my school may have to do..not me. Is that right? (I'm an ordinary student studying in the biology field)
Yes. It is perhaps a bit too restrictive. Good luck.
This is the problem in a nutshell with the dbgap firewall. It prevents researchers from easily accessing the data they need to explore, reproduce or develop new analyses. All under the (mostly false) premise of protecting patient privacy.
