Access and Download Applications

Community-generated software applications are available to download and installed locally at your organization. Many applications are also available online through free public websites or "software as a service" (SaaS) subscription models that can be accessed without needing to be downloaded or hosted locally.

Discovery Research and Cancer Biology Capabilities

Biobanking management system (caTissue): Search, request, annotate, manage, and track biospecimens.

Data analysis tool (caIntegrator): Access and analyze your own clinical and experimental data across multiple studies.

Genomic data analysis platform (geWorkbench): Analyze genomic data using desktop tools for the management, analysis, visualization, and annotation of microarray-based gene expression and sequence data.

Genomic data workflow tool (GenePattern): Analyze gene expression, proteomic, and SNP data; create multi-step analysis pipelines that enable in silico research.

Genomic variation analyzer (caGWAS): Integrate, query, analyze, and report associations between genetic variations and disease, drug response, and other clinical outcomes.

Microarray data management system (caArray): Support annotation and exchange of array data; integrate array data with clinical, imaging, tissue, and other functional genomics data.

Nanoparticle annotation portal (caNanoLab): Support annotation of nanoparticles and share nanotechnology material characterizations and association protocols.

Proteomics analysis system (CPAS): Automate peptide scoring and analysis of tandem mass spectroscopy data.

Clinical Research and Clinical Trial Management Applications

Adverse event reporting system (caAERS): Collect, process, and report patient adverse events that occur during clinical trials using the caBIG® Adverse Event Reporting System (caAERS).

Clinical trial data viewer (LabViewer): Send, receive, and view clinical data from electronic case report forms (e-CRFs), patient registries and calendars, and connect with existing laboratory, adverse event, and data management systems using Lab Viewer.

Clinical trial data management system (C3D): Collect clinical trial data using standard case report forms (CRFs), and support electronic submission of clinical trials data to the NCI Clinical Data System and the Clinical Trial Monitoring Service using the Cancer Central Clinical Database (C3D).

Clinical trial participant calendar (PSC): Create study calendar templates, manage clinical trial participants, and track participant registration and activities through the Patient Study Calendar (PSC).

Clinical trial participant registry (C3PR): Create standardized registration templates; enroll, register, and randomize study participants; and track enrollment statistics through the caBIG® Central Clinical Participant Registry (C3PR).

Clinical trial data and workflow integrator (Integration Hub): Support clinical trials workflow by capturing data from clinical systems and connecting to other caBIG®-compatible clinical trial databases through the caBIG® Integration Hub.

Digital pathology repository (NBIA): Store, annotate, and manage in vivo biomedical images and integrate with clinical and genomic data using the National Biomedical Imaging Archive (NBIA).

FDA 1572 form submitter (FIREBIRD): Support electronic submission of clinical trial investigator info to trial sponsors and regulatory bodies.

Medical image annotation tool (AIM): Annotate, query, save, and share data on in vivo DICOM medical images.
