Background: The GDC (Genomic Data Commons) data portal provides users with data from cancer genomics studies. Recently, we developed the R/Bioconductor TCGAbiolinks package, which allows users to search, download and prepare cancer genomics data for integrative data analysis. The use of this package requires users to have advanced knowledge of R thus limiting the number of users. Results: To overcome this obstacle and improve the accessibility of the package by a wider range of users, we developed TCGAbiolinksGUI that uses shiny graphical user interface (GUI) available through the R/Bioconductor package. Conclusion: The TCGAbiolinksGUI package is freely available within the Bioconductor project at http://bioconductor.org/packages/TCGAbiolinksGUI/. Links to the GitHub repository, a demo version of the tool, a docker image and PDF/video tutorials are available at http://bit.do/TCGAbiolinksDocs.
