An investigation is a collection of analyses related to one dataset (you can create several investigations for one dataset, you cannot use multiple datasets in one investigation).
To see the list of available investigations, press ‘Investigation’ button from the main menu (top panel):
The list will be empty if you didn’t upload any data yet. In our example, we can see one investigation which was automatically created once we uploaded a dataset. You can change the name of an investigation or remove it by pressing the three dots next to the investigation.
To create a new investigation, press ‘New Investigation’ button. You will need to select a dataset and provide a name of the new investigation:
A new investigation will be created. You will see a ‘New Analysis’ screen on which you can create a new blank analysis or create an analysis using one of the analysis templates:
We will create a blank analysis with a title ‘Example Analysis’; after pressing ‘Create’, you will see the new created investigation and analysis:
Panel on top shows information about the investigation and the dataset, panel on the left shows the list of analyses in the investigation.
There are three views available for a selected analysis: Explorer View, Dashboard View, Notebook View (select a View at the bottom right corner).
Examples below illustrate different analysis Views. An analysis used in these examples has a filter, a calculator, and a dashboard (for information how to create them, see Add Filter, Add Calculator, Create Dashboard).
By default, you will see the Explorer View:
- It shows a list of analyses blocks (such as filters or calculators), it is empty for a new analysis.
- It provides 5 tabs which highlight various aspects of the analysis data (Process Map, Variant DNA, Overview, Data Explorer, Dashboard).
- It shows the dashboard on top and analysis blocks (filters and calculators) at the bottom (scroll down to see the blocks).
- The dashboard will be empty for a new analysis.
