About the ENCODE DCC

The ENCODE Data Coordination Center (DCC)'s primary task is to curate, uniformly process and validate the data generated and submitted by ENCODE Consortium members in preparation for release to the scientific community. Click through our documentation to learn more about our methods to organize data and create Uniform Processing Pipelines, and visit the ENCODE DCC Github repo for the code behind the DCC-created ENCODE Portal and more!
