Projects

Final: "The Youth Research Centre’s Life Patterns Research Program at the University of Melbourne maintains an extensive qualitative and quantitative database on a cohort of 2000 young Australians who left secondary school in 1991 and of a second cohort of 4500 who left school in 2005. With ARC funding through ...
Project impetus and drivers
Although cancers may look the same under the microscope, they behave quite differently at the genomic level. By identifying these genetic differences, researchers can start to understand what treatment works for particular patients and administer those first. Understanding which cancers don’t respond to treatment is also ...
The University of Melbourne has an especially rich humanities and social science research community that utilises video as its primary form of data capture. The increasing use of video as a research tool poses particular challenges for aggregated data storage initiatives. This Data Capture project was undertaken by the University’s ...
This project is part of a large research project examining the social, demographic and epidemiological history of the Tasmanian convicts, using a distinctive approach which melds genealogy, demography and prosopography. The convicts were a group of men and women who experienced extreme life stress. Some of them survived, some flourished ...
Final: The Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre (MNC) has 270+ publications resulting from datasets stored in the MNC database. The project resulted in the description and publication of metadata about a number of these datasets, with an expected 5+ being registered each year in the future. The aims of this project were ...
"The University of Melbourne Seeding the Commons Project aims to integrate a broad range of initiatives that promote and support the identification and management of its research data collections. The project focus is on direct exposure of information about existing research data sets, preparing the information for new projects and ...
Project Description: The Founders and Survivors Project (http://www.foundersandsurvivors.org/ ) has brought together a number of research data sets created from records relating to the 73,000 convicts transported to Tasmania in the 19th century and their descendents to create a population database of national and international significance for historical, demographic and ...
The aim of the overall program is to leverage existing work and experience to develop a ?turn key? Research Data Registry solution for Australian research institutes that both satisfies institutional requirements for registering the location of research data, but also maximizes the value of this registry by: Providing a systematic ...
The Mental Health CRC would like to showcase the rich data collections that have been created using the CRC funding and make these discoverable and re-usable both during the life-span of the CRC and beyond. This also provides benefits for further research improving treatment and attracting international collaboration. The data ...
Final: The Australian Drosophila Ecology and Evolution Resource (ADEER) from the Hoffmann lab and other contributors is a nationally significant life science collection. Drosophila species in Australia are widely studied both nationally and internationally to understand climate adaptation, geographic range limits and the genetic basis for climate stress tolerance. The ...
Introduction The approach taken in this project is to establish a spatial platform of fine scale Victorian based data and enable the collaboration between researchers and policy makers. The benefits of this project are that researchers are able to use the latest data via the AURIN portal to develop rigorous ...
Final: In a connected information environment, an Institutional Research Data Registry plays a key role in the reuse and public dissemination of existing research administration data, both outwardly to the data commons, as well as internally towards research groups, providing consistent contextual structures around which to describe research data sets. ...
Final Report: The Distributed and Reflective Informatics System (DaRIS) is a raw data management system based on the Mediaflux digital asset management platform and has been in operation for the last 4 years at the Neuroimaging Computational and Data Management Facility (CDMF). There it has been used to routinely receive ...
"The Melbourne Histopathology and Organ Pathology Service (HOPS) provides Australian researchers with high level imaging and descriptive reporting data that is used to validate and investigate mouse models of disease. The AMHS project links metadata seamlessly with images and other investigational information obtained during histopathological investigations of the mice, as ...
During this project, Research Community Coordinators based at the University of Melbourne developed training materials for widely-used data analysis tools (Python, Natural Language Toolkit, MATLAB and CartoDB) utilising Australian research datasets. These training materials were designed to integrate with the existing curriculums taught by the Data Carpentry Foundation, an international ...
Final: "The University of Melbourne has one of the most rich and diverse humanities and social science (HASS) research communities in Australia and is well ranked internationally. Some HASS researchers at Melbourne generate and hold valuable data sets and associated materials that are currently not easily discoverable, accessible or configured ...
The University of Melbourne sits within multiple precincts which provide a platform to advance research, collaboration and public debate. These precincts facilitate the transfer of ideas and people, generate significant amounts of data, and they contribute to the social, cultural and economic development of communities. With these organisations and initiatives ...
BioGrid Australia Limited provides a secure research platform and infrastructure that enables access to real-time clinical, imaging and biospecimen data across jurisdictions, institutions and diseases. This web-based platform provides ethical access while protecting both privacy and intellectual property. As modern research and planning becomes more complex, the need for collaboration ...
The Genomics Virtual Lab (http://genome.edu.au) is a NeCTAR (http://nectar.org.au) funded program to facilitate best practice genomics in the Australian research community by providing a highly accessible, functional and reproducible cloud-­‐based genomics analysis environment (the GVL Workbench), comprehensive tutorial materials and protocols, managed services and user support. The GVL Workbench is ...
The collection of faults (mutations) in genes causing inherited disease and making this data available is essential for genetic health care and research in all areas of human disease. Collection of such data has been occurring for decades in approximately 10% of the 20,000 human genes, but in a manner ...
