Data Access

NCI is unique in the world in co-locating a vast, publicly funded databank with petascale computing facilities. This allows researchers to query, analyse and publish datasets without slow and expensive data transfer.

Users can query the entire 10 PB NCI National Research Data Collection at once to retrieve data subsets in a compliant format for their research task, eliminating the need for time-consuming file conversion. Thorough metadata catalogues also provide greater providence information for reproducibility and collaboration.
