Of course it it possible. Here are a few examples:
In[1]:= data = {{a, b, c}, {1, 2, 3}, {x, y, z}, {9, 8, 7}}
Out[1]= {{a, b, c}, {1, 2, 3}, {x, y, z}, {9, 8, 7}}
In[2]:= data[[3]]
Out[2]= {x, y, z}
In[3]:= data[[3, 1]]
Out[3]= x
In[4]:= data[[All, 1]]
Out[4]= {a, 1, x, 9}
In[5]:= Transpose[data]
Out[5]= {{a, 1, x, 9}, {b, 2, y, 8}, {c, 3, z, 7}}
In[6]:= Transpose[data][[1]]
Out[6]= {a, 1, x, 9}
