OpenAccess TCGA Data on Terra as MultiAssayExperiment

Bioconductor version: Development (3.18)

Leverage the existing open access TCGA data on Terra with well-established Bioconductor infrastructure. Make use of the Terra data model without learning its complexities. With a few functions, you can copy / download and generate a MultiAssayExperiment from the TCGA example workspaces provided by Terra.
