CTD2 Data Matrix/About Data
The CTD2 centers deposit their data on the open-access matrix below. The matrix stores the data released by the network, along with descriptions of technologies used in the data generation, as well as links to the centers’ web pages and contact information. Subscribe to the listserv (click here) or check the News & Announcements (click here) to stay informed about recent additions of data to the matrix.

Data Release Policy
All data generated by this initiative are released in agreement with the data release policy developed by the Network.
The Data Coordinating Center
The CTD2 data portal is managed by the Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The Data Coordinating Center (DCC) provides resources for project teams actively involved in OCG research initiatives, as well as the scientific community at large. It is a single location where molecular characterization data from NCI OCG large-scale genomic projects are located and can be easily accessed. As such, the DCC ensures:
- Central storage area for data generated for all OCG projects
- Definition of the data types available
- Uniformity of data files
- Inclusion of metadata
- Quality control of data files
- Version control and a version index to provide accurate history of changes
- Connection between the data and various analytical tools
