     6=== 1.1 Description ===
    67MeLuDI is an ''extension package'' to BASE with registration wizards for melanoma-lung cancer projects, in analogy with the package "Reggie" for the SCAN-B breast cancer project. It is named "MeLuDI" after "melanoma/lung cancer diagnostics". This page gives some background information on the software, and is not intended as a user manual. Instead, some behind-the-scene information is given, e.g. what item properties are used to track what steps in the lab processing pipeline an item has passed, which can be useful, if you want to check items for a specific step directly in BASE, or re-do a step, if an error occurred.

     15=== 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.
     17As 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, it is the software that is referenced to.
