Preclinical Imaging XNAT-enabled Informatics (PIXI)
Preclinical imaging is a critical component in translational research. However, many preclinical imaging laboratories are not equipped with the informatics tools to collect the associated metadata/annotation and big data needs to support preclinical imaging research. The objective of this NCI funded project is to develop an open-source preclinical imaging informatics platform—Preclinical Imaging XNAT-enabled Informatics (PIXI)—to:
- Manage the workflow of a preclinical imaging laboratory.
- Develop a database to address the big data needs and collection of metadata/annotation to support NCI’s precision medicine initiative.
- Develop and enable deployment of analytic and computational pipelines in preclinical imaging.
