The project model is a overall way to group subjects, datasets and collections together. A project can relate to the experiments going into a publication, but works just as well for describing day-to-day experiments or for sharing experimental data with collaborators.


NameName of the project (required; max length: 200; must be unique)
DescriptionA rich text description of the project
PublicationsRelated publications
Extra fieldsAllows you to add extra fields to the project. The values can be a string or a numeric value
Public projectDetermines if the project is publicly available or only through the private portal
Name used in repositoryUse this field if you have another name of your project (max length: 200)
TagsTags for the project. Tags are great for organizational purpose, to quickly label a project and can be used as a filter afterwards.


Projects are the overall permissions level. Subjects, Datasets, Collections and module data all inherit permissions through projects. You manage permissions through the management tab, where you can provide individual users and groups access-levels to a project.

Project API access

The API allows for programmable access to projects. Learn more about the projects’ fields and data structure on the Project API page.
