 Contract Topic – Narrowly Focused
NIDA seeks the development and application of a data
warehouse solution that accommodates the Institute’s
needs for a comprehensive, flexible, and adaptable solution
for the storage, indexing, and annotation of various high-
throughput microarrays for genome-wide transcriptional
profiling and polymorphism analysis. The solution sought
will serve as a key component in support of
pharmacogenomics analysis in investigational drug
research. The requirements gathering will focus on needs
for geographically dispersed researchers to load data
remotely, specify experiments through user-friendly client
interfaces, and preserve well-annotated experiments in an
unsummarized raw data format that maintains data points
obtainable from those microarrays. The warehouse should
allow for the export of analyses in a number of common
data formats, such as .csv and .txt, to facilitate further study
of the data in third-party software tools. NIDA will consider
deployed installations as well as application service provider
solutions operated at contractor locations.
