Developing an integrative platform for cancer research: a requirements engineering perspective.
Proceedings of the UK e-Science All Hands Meeting 2006
93 - 100.
The NCRI Informatics Initiative has been established with the goal of using informatics to maximise the impact of cancer research. A clear foundation to achieving this goal is to enable the development of an informatics platform in the UK that facilitates access to, and movement of, data generated from research funded by NCRI Partner organisations, across the spectrum from genomics to clinical trials. To assure the success of such a system, an initial project has been defined to establish and document the requirements for the platform and to construct and validate the key information models around which the platform will be built. The platform will need to leverage many projects, tools and resources including those generated by many e-Science projects. It also required contributing to the development of a global platform through a close interaction with similar efforts being developed by the NCI in the USA. This paper recounts our experience in analysing the requirements for the platform, and explains the customised analysis approach and techniques utilised in the project.
