A module for collating TCGA Level 3 expression data, distributed in a one-file-per-sample format to a single, tab-delimited file with one probe per row, and one column per sample.

Be sure to check for proper line endings! Use the RXCtoGCT module to transform the output into a full-fledged .gct file.


“input”: An archive (tested with .zip) containing BOTH the “file_manifest.txt” generated by TCGA during the data download, and each of the sample files you wish to collate.

“output”: The desired output file name. Will have “.txt” appended.

Known issues:

-Leaves behind the uncompressed .txt files.
