A tutorial on how to create information on individual Study, by Dr. Glenn J. Myatt, Chief Scientific Officer, Leadscope, Inc.
The ToxBank data warehouse has adopted the ISA-tab Universal Data Exchange Format to organize experimental meta data in a consistent manner (http://isatab.sourceforge.net/format.html). The "ISA" represents Investigation, Study and Assay - the three main components of the exchange format.
A study contains information on the samples, their charateristics, and any treatments.
The following tutorial outlines how to create one or more studies within an investigation performed using the ISAcreator software that has been customized to use in creating investigation archives for the SERUAT-1 cluster (http://www.ideaconsult.net/downloads/ISAcreator.SEURAT/ISAcreator.SEURAT-v1.7.2.zip).
