A smoothly functioning laboratory information management system (LIMS) is essential in the era of “Big Data”, where large studies with numerous biosamples are the norm. The LIMS pipeline involves a comprehensive and optimized biosample management protocol (i.e., collecting, labeling and entering samples into the system and safely storing them), applying the analytical technique(s), data tracking (i.e., linking data to the biosample, safely storing the data) and finally applying appropriate methods of data analysis.
