NMC Data Support Platform is an application that can store any biological study. It contains templates which makes it possible to customize.
In order to allow flexibility to capture all information you require within a study, and to make it possible to compare studies or study data, the system uses customizable templates and ontologies. It is especially designed to store complex study designs including cross-over designs and challenges.
NMC Data Support Platform facilitates sharing of data within a research group or consortium, as the study owner can decide who can view or access the data. In addition, NMC Data Support Platform can stimulate collaborations by making study information publicly visible. New studies can be based on study data within the database, as standardized storage is stimulated by the system.
Through the studies menu you can either create, view or import studies (or study data). 'Create a new study' will guide you through several steps to include your study into the system where question marks () will explain what information is required. You can (quick) save your study to complete it at another point in time, or use import study data to import large datasets (for example: many subjects) from an excel sheet into your study. Several data-types of different platforms (assays) can be linked to your study, like simple assays (e.g. clinical chemistry or Western blot) or metabolomics.
