"The researchers at the Monash Institute of Medical Research (MIMR) use Agilent, a microarray platform, and large genomics data repositories like ArrayExpress and GEO. They require the ability to assimilate the research data from these complementary data sources into a single repository to facilitate comprehensive analysis.

The system currently ...
Monash Micro Imaging (MMI) is a microscopy and imaging research support facility located at Monash University and provides access to a range of biomedical instruments and services including: • Optical and fluorescence microscopy • Confocal microscopy • Live cell imaging • Transmission electron microscopy • Scanning electron microscopy • Cryo ...
A central feature of the History of Adoption research being undertaken is collection of life stories from member of the public who have had experience with the adoption process. These stories may be in the form of text or sound files and are mostly submitted directly by the storyteller. Therefore ...
The Biomedical Data Platform Data Capture solution, myTardis, is a multi-institutional collaborative venture that facilitates the archiving and sharing of data and metadata collected at major facilities such as the Australian Synchrotron and ANSTO, and also within Monash University and other institutions. The myTardis solution seamlessly facilitates the capture and ...
This project provides a high-quality feed of Parties and Activities information from the Monash Research Master application to approved Data Collection applications in Monash. The Data Collection applications request related meta data from Research Master and collate it with their Data Collection data and then provide the complete meta data ...
The imaging data generated by Monash’s instruments are an asset with the potential to focus the world’s attention on Monash’s significant research strength. The Major Open Data Collections project has established initial collections of imaging data in a sustainable operational environment which will continue well into the future. Our vision ...
"The Large Research Data Store (LaRDS) at Monash now contains nearly 600 TB of research data across diverse disciplines and continues to grow rapidly. Many of the collections are only privately accessible and lack descriptive metadata. Without metadata, it is difficult to search within collections; and being only privately accessible ...
There is growing evidence that the number of glomeruli in the kidney – which can range from 200,000 to two million – is strongly linked, not only to kidney disease, but to cardiovascular health. Until recently, stereological examination of sectioned sub-samples of ex-vivo, post-mortem kidney tissue was the only proven ...
"The Research Data Collections Project led by Monash University Library aimed to identify and describe research data collections arising from publicly funded research, and to showcase these collections by contributing information about them to Research Data Australia (RDA). As a result of this project, 60+ Monash researchers have been provided ...
In 2010 the Human Proteome Organisation launched the Human Proteome Project (HPP), aimed at cataloguing the protein information arising from the plethora of worldwide proteomic based studies. To support complete coverage, one arm of the project has taken a gene- or chromosomal-centric strategy (C-HPP). The approach to dividing labour in ...
Climate and Weather researchers, both at Monash University and in the wider research community, faced significant challenges due to the extremely large reference and simulation data sets required to do their work. Reference data sets provided by external sources are often so large they are obtained by having them copied ...
Ecosystem research data was previously difficult to access and hampered the actual research and analysis of the data. The researchers faced significant data management challenges including variations in data cataloguing, inability to associate metadata to describe the data, manual data capture using physical storage mediums and data conversion issues.

The TissueStack project is aimed at high resolution 3D imaging with an initial focus on neurological and biological sciences. The project has equal applicability to and has been used in other fields with a need to disseminate large 3D datasets including mining, chemical engineering and digital curation. Modern scientific imaging ...
The purpose of this project was to develop generic software tools to support the organisation of pre-existing digital data collections, particularly photographic data, into files and formats suitable for publication into institutional repositories and into other discovery services including Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC). The solution delivered takes advantage of ...
Monash manages a number of world leading imaging instruments (such as the Synchrotron and those housed at the MMI); data generated by these instruments are significant assets for Monash researchers and beyond. Monash has laid out a strategic vision to create an “Imaging Locus” that will combine and link a ...
The Lattice Light-Sheet (LLS) microscope is a major advance in optical fluorescence microscopy and is anticipated to be widely adopted across life sciences-focused research intensive Universities in Australia. The technique introduces significant informatics challenges: it produces data volumes that are an order of magnitude bigger than traditional microscopy data sets; ...
