The Case Explorer is a visualization tool developed by the CGC team to explore TCGA GRCh38 data visually and dynamically. Note that you cannot explore datasets other than TCGA GRCh38 in the Case Explorer.

The Case Explorer is designed to allow researchers to find a subset of TCGA GRCh38 data easily based on disease and gene mutation. For instance, the Case Explorer can be used to find all female Lung Adenocarcinoma (LUAD) patients with missense TP53 mutations expressed higher than 3,000 fold, as shown below.
