Requirements gathering and validation of project approach

This activity focuses on the team engaging with all of the BPA data generators to understand, identify and document workflows, data and metadata requirements, analysis tools and technical expertise of research groups for each of the four omics streams

During this phase, the project will also be able to document and assess data management platform and an analysis environment options against a set of requirements in order to confirm the best way forward. Metadata standards and a data model for the platform start to develop after extensive consultation with BPA, CCG and EMBL-ABR.

At the end of this phase, the project will have chosen and endorsed:

  • Summary documents for each Genomics , Metabolomics, Proteomics, Transcriptomics
  • Data Management Platform selection
  • Analysis environment selection and a prioritised set of tools which will be deployed
  • A new updated project plan will be created as well as a business case for extending the project into 2017
