Import of example data

It might be easier to understand the logic of the program by trying to do simple operations on existing data. Therefore Biomedical Genomics Workbench includes an example data set.

If you would like to download the example data you have three options:

  1. You can click Download Example Data in the start up table that is visible in the Biomedical Genomics Workbench when no datasets have been opened for viewing. This will take you to where you can choose to download two different example datasets that can be used for the following purposes:

    • Variant identification in a tumor sample. This dataset is taken from a larger whole exome dataset and includes data from a small fraction of chromosome 5 (
    • Identification of somatic variants in a tumor sample using the matched normal sample for removal of germline variants. This is matched tumor and normal samples from chromosome 22 from a whole exome dataset (

  2. You can also go to directly to and download the example data from there.

  3. Finally, you can use these links to get the data: or

When you have downloaded the data from the website, you need to import them into the Biomedical Genomics Workbench. How to import data is described in Standard import.
