I have a list of about 40 barcodes corresponding to TCGA whole exome samples. The CG Hub browser allows one to search by sample type, platform, assembly, library, etc. but not by barcode. If I restrict by the existing filters, I have about 650 samples that I still need to go through by hand to find the 40 or so that I need. Surely there must be a way to search and download specific TCGA barcodes from a list in CG Hub. Does anybody know how to do this?
Thank you, I think that using cgquery may be our best option.
