Identifying Clinical/Translational Research Cohorts: Ascertainment via Querying an Integrated Multi-Source Database

submitted by: Jamia
Abstract: BACKGROUND: Ascertainment of potential subjects has been a longstanding problem in clinical research. Various methods have been proposed, including using data in electronic health records. However, these methods typically suffer from scaling effects-some methods work well for large cohorts; others work for small cohorts only. OBJECTIVE: We propose a method that provides a simple identification of pre-research cohorts and relies on data available in most states in the USA: merged...

The Tranche data repository: Progress made and lessons learned from 24.4 TB of data, 1,612 users and 12,458 depositions.

submitted by: ucsd_idash
ABSTRACT High-throughput data production in proteomics and other post-genome disciplines has resulted in many data sharing, annotation, and dissemination challenges. Successful systems require as much thought and effort be put into the social aspects of engineering as the software side. Close relationships with data generators and users are crucial as is the recognition that development of a database to support a static field is quite different from research fields where the data types,...

Visualization and Analysis of Multiple Streams of Time-Coded Data

submitted by: ucsd_idash
ABSTRACT In many fields of observational research, it is increasingly common to collect many types of data about the activity of study participants, including things such as digital video, system logs, and sensor data. I will present ChronoViz, a tool I have developed for annotation, visualization, navigation, and analysis of multiple streams of time-coded data. Researchers using ChronoViz can navigate data in multiple ways, including through the use of interactive paper technology, and...
