    1616"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.
    1717As 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.

     19=== 1.4 Note on BASE annotations ===
     20BASE was developed to be a web-based interface to a database with bio assay data. In order to simplify adapting the software/database to specific data storage needs, a system of annotation types were developed, making it easy to add storage of new variable data to an "annotatable" item. An annotation type is of a specific data type, e.g. integer, float, string; and is defined for a specific type of item, e.g. samples, extracts, bioplates, item lists, etc.
