Center: Provides the name (domain) for the center that is submitting data for a particular platform.

TCGA Platform Code: Provides the code used in The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) to represent a platform. The platform code is used in archive and file names as well as file contents.

Platform Name: Provides the vendor's name of a particular platform. The platform name links to the best approximation of a direct link to the platform's main information page. On the vendor's page you may find links to the vendor's annotation files and other supporting materials. The DCC does not collect or track vendor annotations. If you have trouble finding the vendor's supporting materials, we recommend you contact the vendor directly.

Sequence Download: The links provided in this column either download the FASTA file that was submitted by the related center and used to create the ADF file, or in the case of sequence-based platforms, take you to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Trace or Short Read Archives where you can download or search the metadata to get the primers used in the assay. Values of "Unavailable" mean that the FASTA file has not yet been posted by the related center, or in the case of sequence-based platforms, the data is not yet available at NCBI. Values of "N/A" mean that probe or primer sequence files are not applicable to the related platform and that those sequences may be available in a result file (e.g. IlluminaGA_mRNA_DGE sequences are available in the archive result files).

TCGA ADF Download: TCGA uses a modified format of the standard MAGE ADF file. TCGA ADFs are used in the analysis of the resulting data. The links provided download the TCGA ADF. Values of "Unavailable" mean that the ADF file has not yet been posted by the related center, or in the case of sequence-based platforms, the data is not yet available at NCBI. Values of "N/A" mean that ADF files are not applicable to the related platform (e.g. IlluminaGA_mRNA_DGE is not an array-based platform and so has no ADF).
