hi all

I am working with somatic mutations in prostate, I downloaded the MAF files + clinical data from TCGA and I installed MuSiC to work with them...however, I need bam or wig files. since I have no access to the bam files, I would like to get hold of the Wiggle files but I am not really sure where to find them/which ones to use...

also, wig files are still pretty big guys (i.e. wiggle files for some ChIPSeq data I worked with are >200Mb each...) ...so if I need to download 200Mb x 400 patients that's gonna be pretty challenging..any suggestions how to circumvent that?

any help would be great.

thanks

I don't think you've left enough information in your question for anyone to be able to offer advice.  I suspect the answer will be along the lines of how to automate downloading those 400 files.  It's definitely a skill worth investing time in.

@nnutter - tnx for the reply, I'm actually ok on how to automate the download of lots of files, I simply don't know where to find them!

so, if it clarifies it a lil, I don't know which Wiggle files I need to use with MuSiC for the "clinical-correlation" and "survival" functions and, not knowing which Wiggle files to use, i don't really know where to get them from.

Wiggle files contain coverage status per bp, that some TCGA GSCs like Broad upload within their MAF archives. So for TCGA PRAD, you'll find them here.

~2 years ago, I had tried to systematically collect coverage data across TCGA exome-seq. It doesn't include a lot of the newer data. But all my notes are now belong to you: http://dx.doi.org/10.7303/syn1695394
