Hi Kevin,

I am downloading the data from ICGC-Pancreatic Cancer. The Sequencing-based Gene Expression data file contains 91 samples. whereas the Clinical Specimen file says it also contains Solid normal samples which I am not able to download. For Example Specimen Ids such as "SP108126, SP108104, SP108107, SP108090, SP108052, SP108072, SP108069" are missing and all 91 samples are from Tumors. It would be great if you let me know how to download the normal samples.

I believe DACO controls access to that data:

You can contact them at

The usual program to download the data is icgc-get
