Copy files using the visual interface


The CGC has [three file repositories](doc:file-repositories-on-the-cgc) including TCGA data and public reference files. To run an analysis on a file, the file must be copied to a project. ##Accessing the file picker in a project To access the file picker from a project: 1. [Navigate to the project](doc:view-a-project). 2. Click on the **Files** tab. 3. Click **Add Files** and select **Public Files**. Alternatively, you can also select **Projects** to copy files from one of your existing projects. ##Searching for a file Once you have accessed your desired file repository, you can search for specific files using the search bar. You can also filter the repository by file type. As shown in the example below, filtering for FASTA files in **Public files** produces all available results.
