There are two ways of loading data into MedCo. The first, using the provided loader, allows to encrypt and load the encrypted data into the MedCo database. The second loads directly pre-generated data into the database without encrypting data.
The current version of the loader offers two different loading alternatives: (v0) loading of clinical and genomic data based on MAF datasets; and (v1) loading of generic i2b2 data. Currently these two loaders support each one dataset:
v0: a genomic dataset (tcga_cbio publicly available in cBioPortal)
Future releases of this software will allow for other arbitrary data sources, given that they follow a specific structure (e.g. BAM format).
Pre-Requisite: Download test data
Execute the download script to download the test datasets.
bash download.sh i2b2
bash download.sh genomic_orig
bash download.sh genomic_fake
bash download.sh genomic_small
The provided example data set files come with dummy data pre-generated. Those data are random dummy entries whose purpose is to prevent frequency attacks. In a future release, the generation will be done dynamically by the loader.
