Linking to the OSSC
Data from ODISSEI data collections will be linked in the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer. Many data collections in the social sciences have begun to include genotype information or other measures such as MRI and recordings from wearables. These can be pooled to achieve larger sample sizes to study rare conditions or small and hard to reach sub-populations. To accommodate and link multiple sensitive data sources together, the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer is required. The Netherlands Twin Registry will take the lead in linking the ODISSEI Secure Supercomputer project to a diverse range of ODISSEI data collections. Running new and innovative genetic analyses on multiple traits, longitudinal outcomes, and gene-environment interactions will allow insights into the role of genetics in social phenomenon within Dutch society. The aim will be to set up standard operating procedures (SOP) for running parallel analyses within multiple ODISSEI data collections with their data linked to other sensitive data sources such as Administrative Data from Statistics Netherlands. Because of privacy, informed consent, and linkage issues, combining data from different data collections must be done in the secure access facility that ODISSEI provides. Combining data across data collections will substantially enhance statistical power, which is essential in many fields of research.
