MoBa Explorer: Enabling the navigation of data from the Norwegian Mother, Father, and Child cohort study (MoBa)

Abstract

Studies in public health have generated large amounts of data helping researchers to better understand human diseases and improve patient care. The Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) has collected information about pregnancy and childhood to better understand this crucial time of life. However, the volume of the data and its sensitive nature make its dissemination and examination challenging. We present a work-in-progress design study and accompanying web application, the MoBa Explorer, which presents aggregated MoBa study data genotypes and phenotypes. Our research explores how to serve two distinct purposes in one application: (1) allow researchers to interactively explore MoBa data to identify variables of interest for further study and (2) provide MoBa study details to an interested general public.
