BBMRI-NL’s data integration services

Biomedical research projects increasingly collect heterogeneous data sets from various sources and data modalities, such as imaging, clinical, multi-omics and biosamples.  It requires dedicated software tools to browse, visualize and analyse these complex data sets. BBMRI-NL supports several solutions: tranSMART, cBioPortal and MOLGENIS.

tranSMART is a data integration, sharing, and analysis platform for clinical and translational research. It allows users to search, view, and analyze data through a web interface, thereby allowing easy access to explore such data from multiple domains at study level. As a knowledge management platform, it enables scientists to develop and refine research hypotheses by investigating correlations between genetic and phenotypic data and assessing their analytical results in the context of other data sets.

cBioPortal – the cBio Cancer Genomics Portal is an open-source resource for interactive exploration of multidimensional cancer genomics data sets. The cBio Cancer Genomics Portal visualizes complex genomic data for cancer researchers that want rapid, intuitive, and high-quality access to molecular profiles and clinical attributes from large-scale cancer genomics projects. It empowers researchers to translate rich data sets into biologic insights and clinical applications.

MOLGENIS – an open-source resource to find, capture, exchange, manage and analyse scientific data. It is fully customizable: data structure, user interface and layout can be fully changed and allows plug-in custom (bioinformatics) scripts.
