Retrieve Genomic and Clinical Data from TCGA

The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) is a program aimed at improving our understanding of Cancer Biology. Several TCGA Datasets are available online. 'TCGAretriever' helps accessing and downloading TCGA data hosted on 'cBioPortal' via its Web Interface (see <> for more information). 'TCGAretriever' is easy to use (get all the TCGA data you need with a few lines of code), enforces reliable data download (via 'httr'), and is suitable for downloading large volumes of data.
