The Workplace Framework cell (WORK) is an i2b2 Hive core cell. This cell manages i2b2 project specific XML data objects for user of a given project. The project specific XML data objects originate in other views or cells, such as Ontology or Previous Query and are stored in the WORK cell as a convenience.
The project specific XML data objects in the WORK cell are organized in hierarchical structures that represent the relationships between elements. The top levels in the hierarchy are called the "parents" or "roots" with the lower levels being their "children". Elements occurring on the same level are known as "siblings". A level in a hierarchy is sometimes referred to as a "node".
The WORK cell does the following:
- Accepts new XML data object for storage
- Provides a listing of those items previously stored.
- Allows the user to organize, label and annotate stored data objects however they choose.
