Hi, I've a doubt for which I've no answer.

The fourth field of the TCGA barcode contains the information about the sample, either primary tumor, metastatic, etc

For instance TCGA-93-A4JP-01A-11H-A24S-13, this is a primary tumor, but what does the A next to the 02 means? Sometimes I've sen other letter than A such C, E...

Thanks
