A redaction, in terms of TCGA, is to remove cases from the data prior to publication or release. Redacted cases are generally rare, but cases must be redacted when the subject withdraws consent, TSS/BCR subject link is incorrect (“unknown patient identity”), or in the cases of genotype mismatch, completely wrong cancer or completely wrong organ/tissue. Redactions occurs regardless of a case’s analyte characterization or DCC data deposition status.
