The Seven Bridges Knowledge Center

The Seven Bridges Platform is a simple solution for doing bioinformatics at industrial scale. But sometimes, everyone needs a little help.

Get Started

Query datasets via the Data Browser

Seven Bridges is committed to providing its Platform users with the most up-to-date versions of the public datasets that are available from the NCI Genomic Data Commons (GDC). In keeping with this commitment, the Seven Bridges Platform transitioned to hosting the GDC Data Release 14.0 versions of TCGA GRCh38, TARGET GRCh38, TCGA legacy, and CCLE on February 11, 2019.

As of this date, all files accessible via the Data Browser correspond to Data Release 14.0. Files from earlier dataset versions that are no longer represented in Data Release 14.0 are no longer accessible through saved Data Browser queries, and affected queries will return a result of '0'.

In addition, due to a change in the way some files within these datasets are hosted, a small number of saved Data Browser queries for which the files are still available also will return a '0' result. Such queries can be recreated using the Data Browser query-building canvas and will continue to return the same results as previously.

Please contact the Support Team at if you have any questions. The CGC Team looks forward to continuing to collaborate with the GDC in the months ahead to ensure the timely availability through the CGC of new data releases for this dataset.


The Data Browser is an interactive graphical interface for visually exploring datasets. Build queries to filter data by its metadata attributes. Then, add the filtered data to a project for further analysis.

Access the Data Browser
