Dear Sir/Madam,
Hope you are doing well. I would like to seek your help regarding extracting corresponding information from gene names. I have around 100 genes of interest and I would like to extract the data such as RNA-seq results, CNV results, SNP results, DNA methylation of various cancers from Genome Browser. Is it possible to extract these information from different types of cancer related to my genes of interest? It would be great if you can suggest me in proceeding ahead. Please let me know if you need any other information and thanks for your valuable time.
With kind regards,
Amit Jaiswal

to Amit Jaiswal,
Hello, Amit.

Thank you for your question about accessing data in the UCSC Genome Browser.

I would recommend exploring the data available in the Genome Browser to find the tracks that contain the data that you are interested in. Once you've identified these tracks, you can use the Table Browser to download the data for them. If you have the genomic positions of your genes (e.g  chrX:151,283,001-151,290,000), you can use the Table Browser's "define regions" option to specify them. Here are some video tutorials that may be of interest to you:

The Data Integrator may also be of interest to you. It allows you to intersect up to five tracks from the Genome Browser and output arbitrary columns from each of the tracks. This video explains how to use the Data Integrator: This answer to an old mailing list question may also provide some help with using the Data Integrator to extract data as well. 

If you're new to using the Genome Browser, these three videos should give you a good introduction to using it and navigating around:
