Sample and Data Processing

Once the biosamples and data have been collected from the participant in the clinic, they are sent to various data and sample processing centres so that they can be analysed further and prepared for storage. These processes include ECGs being analysed and coded, data being acquired from NHS or the police force databases, and blood and urine samples being prepared by the pathology laboratory for long-term storage.

Some data processing might happen at a later stage when there is more funding is available. For example, a new grant funded metabolomic analysis and genome mapping for some of the cohort.

As elsewhere in the collected artworks, where data and sample processing is completed in a physical space, they are represented by three-dimensional isometric cubes, and when data is held in a virtual space, represented by a two-dimensional square.
