# Where to Download Cancer Raw Reads (fastq)?

Does anyone know where I can download cancer raw reads (fastq files), tumor and Germline for non-humans?

I wanted to make a study with human data but I don't have the control access to download raw reads.

• So do you want human or non-human? Your question is confusing. For human, have a look at Is there a publicly available tumor-normal sample?. Is that what you need? – terdon Feb 20 '19 at 17:11
• Please tell us when you cross-post your question. This question is also asked on biostars. – finswimmer Feb 20 '19 at 20:15

You can try to browse SRA (sequence read archive) at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra. To download fastq files from SRA, you'll need their sratoolkit: https://trace.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Traces/sra/sra.cgi?view=software.

The easy command to download fastq files by their accession number is :

fastq-dump --split-files accession_number
