2016_01_28 Data Snapshot

For TCGA data, redaction is the removal of cases from the data prior to publication or release. Redacted cases are generally rare, but cases must be redacted when the TSS/BCR subject link is incorrect ("unknown patient identity"), or in the case of genotype mismatch, completely wrong cancer, or completely wrong organ/tissue. Redaction occurs regardless of a case's analyte characterization or DCC data deposition status.

Rescission is the removal of samples from the list of redactions. This happens if the reason for redaction is eventually cleared up. For clarity, rescinded redactions do not appear in this report.

There were no redactions.
