Is there a database available to query for the TCGA bam files?

You are able to query TCGA bam files using the visual data browser - see http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/docs/the-data-browser. This resource is built on top of a RDF triplestore which can be queried programmatically using the SPARQL language. We'll making a SPARQL endpoint available and further documentation about the ontology we use to describe TCGA data shortly. In the meantime, there are lots of great resources about RDF and SPARQL, I like the tutorial at http://drjamesmalone.blogspot.com/2015/05/rdf-training-at-ebi.html.
