    1515=== 1.3 MeLuDI: The project, and MeLuDI: The software ===
    16 "MeLuDI" (short for "melanoma/lung cancer diagnostics") is the name of a project at the Department of Oncology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University. It produces clinical genomics data from samples from patients having specific types of cancer, but also aims to support cancer research. Originally, the focus was on melanoma and lung cancer, but later on, more cancer types were supported.
    17 As part of the LIMS procedure, it was decided to store sample data in a database managed by BASE, and which normally was accessed through a BASE extension, named "MeLuDI" after the project. The software does not necessarily cover all aspects of the project, it was named after. However, when the name "MeLuDI" is used in this document without further specification, the reference is to the software.

     17==== 1.3.1 The original MeLuDI project 2014 - 2016 ====
     18"MeLuDI" (short for "melanoma/lung cancer diagnostics") was the name of a project at the Department of Oncology, Clinical Sciences, Lund University. It was initiated in 2014, went into "production" phase in 2015-01-01, and ended 2016-06-23 after it had been announced 2016-01-21 that another laboratory should perform the analyses in question. The MeLuDI project produced clinical genomics data from samples from patients having specific types of cancer, but also aimed to support cancer research. Originally, the focus was on melanoma and lung cancer, but later on, more cancer types were supported.

The software did not cover all aspects of the project, it was named after. When the name "MeLuDI" is used in this document without further specification, the reference is to the software. The last software version used for the original MeLuDI project was MeLuDI v1.4.3.

     21==== 1.3.1 MeLuDI software 2016- ====
     22During fall 2016, a number of research projects at Lund University involved lab work using a workflow very close to the one used for the original MeLuDI project, so it was decided that a modified version of the MeLuDI software was to be used to track samples. MeLuDI was updated to support use in several BASE projects, allowing different items to have project-specific prefixes and number of digits in names, as well as project-specific default values for a number of items. Created documents like dilution protocols and statistics reports were updated to include the name of the active project. Together with other updates intended to support more flexibility in the workflow, the updated software was released as MeLuDI v1.5.0.
