Overview

Note:

Study::Metadata#study_type_valid? has hard-coded validation to prevent the 'Not specified' study type from being used. This should probably be updated to use the #valid_for_creation flag. I'm also not sure of having 'Not specified' be a specific database entry, although it has been assigned to several historic studies so does at least allow a not_nil constraint.

On Study creation the user selects a StudyType from a drop down list of pre-registered study types.

This information is exposed:

  • In the warehouses, where it may be used by customers, NPG, or bioinformaticians

  • Via the V1 API. (Not aware of any uses here, but there may be)

  • As <STUDY_TYPE existing_study_type=“…” /> during study accessioning with the EBI
