Genomics Data Commons (GDC)
The Center for Cancer Genomics at NCI has issued a contract solicitation for the creation of a Genomics Data Commons (GDC) to host all genomic data produced by NCI-sponsored genomic projects. The goal of the GDC is to bring all data files from these projects under a single roof, with common data standards to allow the querying of the files across projects.
Details on the solicitation can be found at the link below. Deadline for application is January 24th, 2014.
