- Data Management
We offer data management for all our users.
To accomplish this, we do mostly automatic data handling including
- transfer of data to our primary storage server
- each project has own folder
- users can access their own projects only
Recent developments in the neuroscientific research field and data security considerations were respected during construction of our system to make us sustainable.
- Data Storage
After transfer of data into each project’s storage space,
data conversion from DICOM to NIFTI is done.
Subsequently, data are laid out according to the Brain Imaging Data Structure (BIDS) to ease development of analysis code which can be used in several projects without large adaptation and to support code and data sharing.
Projects have their own space (several TB) to do data analysis etc.
- Quality Control
Within the scope of our data management, all MRI data is subject to automatic quality control procedures.
Users can access QA information from either their project’s folder or BIONPROVE’s pages.
- Data Analysis
Users can access our compute server/node via
Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). The hardware
of our compute server is sufficient to do
the "daily brain imaging stuff":
- Debian Linux
- 36 CPU cores
- 384 GB main memory
- Analysis Software
Software packages frequently used in MRI data analysis are available, including
- Data management plan
- A data management plan is also available to users for further details about our internal treatment of our data. The most recent version can be requested from us.
