This tutorial can be completed using a free 30-day trial version of LabKey Server.

This tutorial topic teaches you how to set up a new study from scratch. Using sample datasets, you will assemble and configure the backbone of a study, and learn about study properties, cohorts, and specimens along the way.

This process is primarily about 'putting the pieces together'. Starting with Excel spreadsheets, the tutorial assembles a simple LabKey "study": a repository of integrated data that you can explore and analyze. The aligned data provides a unified picture of the study results that can be more easily analyzed as a "whole" than disparate parts.

All data used is fictional.

Learn more about study basics and components like participants, time measurements, and data classifications in this topic: Longitudinal Studies.

This tutorial creates a date-based study with time broken into 28 day timepoints, roughly corresponding to months.
