Hi folks, I'm working on breast cancer subtype identification and I'm dying for the METABRIC breast cancer data. I've contacted the deposit site, the DATA whatever committee, the corresponding authors, no one has replied to me yet. I have to admit that although it's a Nature paper and the data has been used for DREAM7 challenge, it's almost impossible to get the data... I'm just wondering if anyone would be willing to share the data with me，or any clues where I can download the data? I need the gene expression data and the clinical information. Big thanks!!
These data involve human subjects and potentially identifying information, so it would be highly unethical to share the protected parts of them. As far as I know, you will need to go through the process of requesting access through the Data Access Committee for protected data--there is no way around that.
The data and access details are available through here (at least):
