Hello, I am trying to download gene expressions values from TCGA-GBM project from GDC using TCGAbiolinks using the example code below;
query <- GDCquery(project = "TCGA-GBM", legacy = TRUE,
data.category = "Gene expression", data.type = "Gene expression quantification",
platform = "Illumina HiSeq", file.type = "normalized_results", experimental.strategy = "RNA-Seq")
GDCdownload(query); GDCprepare(query, save=T)
But, I am unable to save the object from GDCprepare. Should the object from GDCprepare result in a dataframe? (It's not a dataframe when I checked it). If so how to access the gene expression values within them? Is it possible to extract only gene expression and patient ID from S4 object resulting from GDCprepare
Any help is much appreciated.
