ISB-CGC Data Explorer

Cohorts are a way of creating custom groupings of the samples and/or cases that you are interested in analyzing further. Selecting the Data Explorer menu option on the ISB-CGC Home screen will display the Create Cohorts - Filters screen. You will be able to use the available filters to create a cohort, without logging into the ISB-CGC Web Application. Except for the ability to save cohorts, this screen has the same functionality as the one that you navigate to when selecting the COHORTS - Create a New Cohort - Filters option after signing into the Web App. To learn more about this screen, see the Cohorts documentation.

You may want to frequently reuse a cohort in multiple analyses. Creating a “saved cohort” allows you to do this. If this is the case, click on the Login to Save New Cohort button.
