Collaboration on the CGC

The CGC provides an easy collaboration environment for teams working both locally and globally across multiple institutions. Through providing a cloud environment, the CGC allows collaborators to work together on the same project without having to download datasets.

Collaborations in Controlled Data Projects

To help you prevent sharing Controlled Data with unauthorized persons, the CGC has Controlled Data Projects.

These projects are tagged with a closed lock and can only be shared amongst users with access to TCGA or TARGET Controlled Data though the dbGaP. We encourage you to read the dbGap data sharing policies before you add collaborators to your project.


Get Controlled Data access

If you don't have Controlled Data access, see the dbGaP website for more information on how to obtain permissions.
