Work package 1: Bioinformatics

WP1 focuses on the development of an integrated bioinformatics platform that functions as a repository of clinical data, biomarker data, images, as well as storage of bio-tissues from a broad spectrum of OA patients. In addition, WP1 will define subsets of OA patients with existing data from cohorts enabling bioinformatics to stratify the patients in targetable subsets and - if needed - to derive very early markers using the oldest data in the repository established.
