I downloaded the following data file from URL: https://depmap.org/portal/download/
My questions are:
1.What is the difference between this data file vs the expression data: CCLE_expression_v2.csv at the same URL?
My confusion part is: these RNAseq data is expression data of these cell lines by themselves (cell lines used for DepMap) without any treatment, or these RNAseq data is expression data of these cell lines after depmap treatment such as after RNAi screening in DEMETER or after CRISPR screening for CERES scores?
2.What is difference between Q1, Q2,q3? I know they are different released data for each quarter, but we noticed that one of the cell lines we are interested are only in CCLE_DepMap_18q3_RNAseq_RPKM_20180718.gct, BUT NOT in other Q1, Q2 data files e.g., CCLE_DepMap_18Q1_RNAseq_RPKM_20180214.gct
Thx so much for your help in advance!
