Dear List,

I am trying to download cnv data for esophageal cancer in TCGAbiolinks. 1 file is downloaded. In the file I get with TCGAbiolinks, samples are identified with designations such as 75a8bcb9-cac9-4fee-8757-bb802f4d355f", and copy numbers are identified by -1,0,1. When I use the TCGA web interface samples are identified by their sample numbers, and copy numbers are denoted by their actual inferred copy number 1,2, 10 etc. However they are is that it is in 183 separate folders, so I would prefer to use TCGAbiolinks, which produces a dataframe, if possible.

I just added suport to this data type

query.cnv <- GDCquery(
    project = "TCGA-ESCA",
    data.category = "Copy Number Variation",
    data.type = "Gene Level Copy Number"

GDCdownload(query.cnv) data <- GDCprepare(query.cnv)
