Patients in clinical care are routinely subjected to a range of physiological testing such as ultrasound, x-ray, angiography and echo-cardiology. However once gathered and used, this multi-model data is simply stored and is not analysed further or used for subsequent studies.
Making this data available to researchers, along with the patient outcome information such as recovery or morbidity, will enrich current studies and enable further research opportunities.
This project will first and foremost enable the sharing and re-use of current physiological data collections and will facilitate links between biomedical research groups in engineering, physics and bioinformatics. In collaboration with BioGrid Australia, it will utilise the access and privacy protocols already in place there.
The project further aims to map BioGrid metadata to the ANDS schema; write a service to populate ANDS-compliant metadata; develop a service to harvest such metadata from multiple BioGrid data sets which form a single study; and enable globally unique identifiers to be assigned which will link to the source of the datasets.
