I downloaded hundreds of miRNA quantifications files from GDC and wanted to analyze its association with clinical information. The problem is how to get corresponding sumitter ID (previous TCGA barcode) of each file.

This is an example:

I can view the case UUID (79e469c5-c18c-4c20-aaa2-8866623229d9) and view the submitter id (TCGA-BP-4343) by clicking the link. Where can I downloaded submitter id for hundreds of files?

Thanks for any hint.

following the instruction on I figured out how to download the uuid and barcode associated with each miRNA quantification file.

first determine how many files there are curl ''

we can see that there are 11488 files in total:

  "data": {
    "pagination": {
      "count": 5, 
      "sort": "", 
      "from": 1, 
      "page": 1, 
      "total": 11488, 
      "pages": 2298, 
      "size": 5

then, we can retrieve all the files with:

curl '' >submitter_ids.tsv

additional fields can be added to select columns.
