# GDC data portal cancer subtype

I need to use Gene Expression quantification data (using HTSeq-FPKM-UQ) for breast cancer data on the gdc portal (https://portal.gdc.cancer.gov/repository) to classify breast cancer subtypes (luminal A, luminal B, HER2-like, basal-like).

However, since I don't know the portal, I'm having problems in associate the EXP data and the label.

I could get the label either by using the old TCGA-barcode and use a dictionary I already have from an article (but I don't know how to get the barcode from the portal / API) or by using clinical data (but I don't know how to find metadata that link the EXP and the clinical data).

Is there anyone more used to the portal who could help me?

• Your question doesn't give enough details for even someone familiar with this portal to try and help, I think. Do you have an example of a dataset you want to interrogate, and how it is deficient in the details you require? Jul 25 '18 at 13:24
