Provenance and Run History

Due to the lack of scientific reproducibility in biomedicine, in general, the NIC platform has implemented several features we hope will encourage reproducible science. In addition to a PostgreSQL database that stores all inputs, we also allow the user to recreate past runs.

After you have completed a conversion and correlation run, you are able to rerun one of these runs.


You will only be able to see your past runs and no one else can see your runs.

The page will look like this:


When you click either Rerun Conversion Input or Rerun Correlation Inputs, you will be taken back to those respective pages with the forms automatically populated with that run’s data. Then you can follow the process described in steps 2 or 3.
