Get a brief overview of some of the main components of Synapse.
Synapse enables responsible resource sharing with features that allow data contributors to control who views data and how. Sharing Settings can be defined on any File, Folder or Project to keep data private or grant access to any number of Users, including all Synapse users, or Teams.
Synapse features provide novel functionality to help you organize your collections of data. In addition to uploading and downloading data, learn how to upload new versions of existing files, download previous file versions, create Tables to visualize data and create Views to surface file metadata.
Synapse is a collaborative platform. Learn about tools that allow this, such as Discussion threads and Wikis.
These topics will help you learn about useful settings in Synapse.
Annotations are a feature to systematically group and describe things in Synapse. Add Annotations to Files, Folders and Projects to surface search terms across datasets, helping users to find and query data.
Unify data and code with Synapse programmatic clients. Programmatic clients provide an interface to Synapse to link computationally-intensive processing with relevant data stored on Synapse.
Cite data directly using a DOI to fully integrate publications and relevant evidence into your Synapse Project. You can set Provenance to explicitly link GitHub code and other resources to data files. Tracking these steps directly can increase trust in the reliability of your data and analyses.
