Were the same analysis tools used for every sample in one data collection?

The analysis tools used for samples in a given data collection can vary depending on the technologies (i.e. PacBio, exome, etc.) that were used to generate data for any given sample. The technologies may not be the same across all samples in a collection.

Generally, however, for any given analysis the data types will be the same or very similar and will have been analysed in a consistent manner.

For data collections where the analysis has been published, the publication will give details of what methods were used. Checking this may involve looking at the supplementary material. We list publcations on our data collections page. In addition, for analyses which may not have been published, you will find README files on our FTP site, in the directories for each data collection, that provide further information.
