Data Collections on M3

MASSIVE hosts a copy of the following reference data sets and large data collections. Please see instructions below if you would like us to consider hosting a data collection on the M3 system.

1. Human Connectome Project Dataset (HCP)

  • Brief description:
    Copy of the following two HCP data releases are available on M3:
    1. The 900 Subjects Release (S900) that includes behavioural and 3T MR imaging data from over 900 healthy adult participants collected. In addition to MR scans, 95 subjects also have some resting-state MEG (rMEG) and/or task MEG (tMEG) data available.

    2. The 1200 Subjects Release (S1200) that includes behavioural and 3T MR imaging data from 1206 healthy young adult participants (1113 with structural MR scans) collected in 2012-2015. In addition to 3T MR scans, 184 subjects have multimodal 7T MRI scan data and 95 subjects also have some resting-state MEG (rMEG) and/or task MEG (tMEG) data available. For the first time, 3T MRI and behavioural retest data for 46 subjects is also available.

  • Data access process:

    This data is restricted to M3 users that have their email registered with HCP (i.e. an account) AND have accepted the HCP terms and conditions associated with the datasets. You can find more information to get you started with HCP data M3 documents on HCP data set

  • Brief description:

    BLAST search pages under the Basic BLAST section of the NCBI BLAST home page use a standard set of BLAST databases for nucleotide, protein, and translated BLAST searches. These databases are made available as compressed archives of pre-formatted form. The FASTA files reside under the /FASTA subdirectory.

  • Data access process:

    There is no restriction to access this database on M3.
