I am mainly adding this short tutorial for my benefit due to the fact that this website can be difficult to find.
Have you ever come across a clinical data parameter while processing TCGA data and then wondered what the parameter means? You may then notice that each has an associated CDE code, but what does that mean?
new_tumor_event_pharmaceutical_tx additional_pharmaceutical_therapy CDE_ID:3427616
We can search for these CDE codes at the CDE Browser in order to obtain a better description of them.
Step 1, go to
Public ID Search tab and paste in the CDE code
Step 2, click
Search and the results will appear at the bottom
Step 3, browse through the tabs
There is a lot of info there...
