PROBLEM The bcr_patient_barcode contains sample identifier as "TCGA-HC-A6AP-01A" except for last 3 digits. The last 3 digits indicates sample.type which is missing. How to know the sample type in "cli_patient" file as in hereTCGA_sampletypes

You can make a table that translates the numeric code to the sample types listed here.

The clinical- patient data, the bcr_patient_barcode contains only "TCGA-HC-A6AP" (without 01A) unlike in transcriptome data. So, from the list of clinical data, how to know sample.type. This was my question.
