Create a project

Before you can start analyzing your data, you need to create a project. There are two types of projects on the Platform, Open and Controlled Data Projects.

Controlled Data Projects protect Controlled Data by restricting access to users with dbGaP access permissions to Controlled Data.

To create a project:

  1. Click the Projects tab on the top navigation bar and select Create a project from the drop-down menu.
