#BOSS Tools Instructions and Notes
Although programmatic solutions are required to process and organize the huge data sets generated large studies and clinical trials, many research teams have smaller projects whose data they compile in conventional spreadsheet sofware (eg. Excel). To facilitate access to our analytical tools, we are building free, open-access, standalone modules for these tools. They are designed to allow investigators to input and analyze their data from a simple CSV (Excel) format. These tools are designed to run in the Google Chrome web browser. Our goal is build a platform that allows users to create interactive, living figures that can be shared and modified among collaborating research groups. The underlying code is open-source and our hope is that this will allow others to improve the existing modules and build new ones that enhance the functionality of the platform.
